"Game on": Quader warns BNP
Issuing a warning, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said a game will be played in December against the misrule of BNP, vote thieves and arsonists.
"BNP failed to raise 13 minutes' movement in 13 years and the BNP leaders failed to bring out a procession for their chairperson Khaleda Zia, now they are dreaming of toppling the government. They are vowing that they will hold a victory march with Khaleda Zia on December 10. If we call, BNP would not find any path to escape," he said.
The Road Transport and Bridges Minister said this while addressing the triennial conference of Tangail district unit Awami League at Tangail Stadium on Monday.
Talking about the BNP's Barishal divisional anti-government rally, the minister said, "Dubai's money flies in the sky and they (BNP) are involved in instigating people against the government. They have no mercy on common people, they need only peacock throne which is why they are instigating the people."
He said Ziaur Rahman awarded the killer of Bangabandhu and enacted a law to stop all ways for the trial of the killers, but now the game will be played against those involved in awarding the killers and enacting the law.
"I have learned that the BNP is agitating to regain their power. Actually, they are doing so to bring back the 'Hawa Bhaban'. The game will be played against the evil power of Tarique Rahman," he said.
Pointing at his BNP counterpart, Obaidul said "During the tenure of BNP we could not stay at our homes but they are sitting in air-conditioned rooms. Please wait! The people of the country will explain to you what is movement and how many types of movement, and what are they?"
Referring to the new committee, the Awami League leader said there will be no trade over Awami League committee and the leaders will be picked as per the wish of the workers.
