BNP is trying to "jeopardise" peace in name of planned movement in order to cover up their failure, said Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader yesterday.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said this while speaking at the Chatmohar upazila Awami League conference through a video conference from his official residence in the capital.
Just like their election campaigns and movements, Quader said, BNP's ill political motive on corona vaccination has been rejected by people of the country.
Conducting propaganda against the government in home and abroad, arson attack by BNP and the recent smear campaign by Al Jazeera against the government and the country are interlinked, he said.
Quader asked party leaders concerned to form committee through conference, as any pocket committee would never be allowed. Leaders must be made depending on the support and opinion of activists, he added.
Chaired by Chatmohor upazila AL president Shakhawat Hossen, the conference was attended, among others, by AL organising secretary SM Kamal Hossen, AL central committee members Nurul Islam Thandu, Merina Jahan Kabita and Abdul Awal Shamim, former state minister for home Shamsul Haq Tuku and district AL general secretary Golam Maruf Prince.
TAKE LESSONS FROM BANGABANDHU
Earlier, at a discussion organised by the Roads and Highways Department marking Bangabandhu's birth centenary, the minister emphasised on taking lessons from integrity of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to steer the country ahead by facing future challenges.
"To fulfill the dream of Bangabandhu, We have to strengthen Sheikh Hasina's hand… by taking lessons from his honesty, to move the country forward through facing all imminent challenges," he said while joining the event through a video conference.
Chaired by Roads and Highways Division chief M Abdus Sabur, the meeting was virtually attended, among others, by Bangabandhu Birth Centenary Celebration National Implementation Committee chief coordinator Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury, columnist Syed Abul Maksud, Prime Minister's Office secretary M Tofazzal Hossain Mia and other RHD officials.
