September 3, 2019
.Road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader has said, “BNP leaders call for a movement, then go home and watch Hindi serials on TV.”He was speaking as chief guest at the conference of the Dhaka City Tanti (weavers) League (North-South) held today, Tuesday, at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh in the capital city.The minister, also general secretary of ruling Bangladesh Awami League, said, “BNP has a 596-member committee. They cannot take to the streets in a procession. If a party does not have that much courage, how will its activists take to the streets?”He said BNP’s movement will never succeed. If Awami League does not turn on itself, BNP will never be successful.Obaidul Quader went on to say, “After 2001, Awami League leaders and workers had to flee their homes. Their ponds, livestock and homes were looted. This will happen all over again if BNP comes to power.”He urged the leaders and workers to do away with their differences and work together in a unified manner in order to avoid a repeat of that situation.The Awami League general secretary expressed his deep sorrow over the landslides in Chittagong, Bandarban, and Rangamati which killed many persons including army personnel. He issued directives for the leaders and workers of the local Awami League and its front organisations to carry out rescue operations in the affected areas and stand by the injured.Also present at the conference were Tanti League president Mohammed Shawkat Hossain, general secretary Khagendra Chandra Debnath and others.
