Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader yesterday said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir should resign from his party, taking responsibility for failing to wage a movement and losing in the election.
“As a secretary general he couldn't wage a movement even for 10 minutes over the last 10 years while his party couldn't get even 10 seats in the election. He should resign, taking responsibility for the failures, if he has any sense of shame,” he said.
A day after Fakhrul asked him to apologise publicly for “vote rigging” in the 11th parliamentary polls, Quader hit back at his BNP counterpart while talking to reporters at AL's Bangabandhu Avenue office after an extended meeting of Dhaka south city unit of Jubo League.
Quader also said Fakhrul is now behaving like a “reckless driver”.
“Ask Mr Quader to go to a stadium and apologise to the nation for resorting to blatant lies and deceiving people,” Fakhrul had said.
Terming the election “transparent and excellent”, Quader questioned whether any agent of the candidates of BNP and Jatiya Oikyafront raised objection about the transparency of the election on the voting day.
