Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday (19 April) termed BNP as communal force, kingpin of corruption and money laundering and urged all to resist them.

“BNP is the main obstacle to the country’s overall progress. They should be resisted,” he told a discussion marking the 52nd founding anniversary of Krishak League at Krishibid Institution Bangladesh in the capital’s Khamarbari.

Quader said BNP is now disoriented as its leader is staying in London and workers have become frustrated. BNP workers also don’t believe that the party has any future, he said.

Those who failed in waging movement and resisting polls are now criticizing the government, he said.

The AL general secretary those who perpetrated assassination of Bangabandhu and most of his family members and killing of four national leaders are now talking about democracy.

He said BNP itself remains in crisis so that they are saying the country is in crisis. As long as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina remains in power, the country will never lose its path, he said.

Krishak League President Samir Chanda chaired the discussion while AL Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Organizing Secretary Mirza Azam, Agriculture and Cooperative Affairs Secretary Faridunnahar Laily and Krishak League acting General Secretary Biswanath Sarker Bitu also spoke.
