Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has alleged that the BNP is hatching conspiracy centring the quota reform movement as they failed to wage any anti-government agitation.

“BNP wants to create an issue capitalising on the quota reform movement,” the road transport and bridges minister told a press conference at the Setu Bhaban at Banani on Monday.

The AL general secretary said as the BNP has no public support to wage a movement now the party is out to capitalise on the quota reform movement.

Quader said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina would keep her words on the announcement she made over the quota system.

He also urged the demonstrators of quota reform movement to stay calm for few days, reports BSS.

The minister said there is no lack of sincerity on the part of the government as regard the quota system reformation but it cannot be solved in no time.

Quader said a committee was formed to review the quota system and the committee held its first meeting.

Talking about BNP’s announcement to free BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail through movement, the AL general secretary said they resorted to sabotage, violent acts and killings in the past in the name of movement.

The people of the country would never support BNP’s violent acts, he added.

Quader said the BNP also tried to wage movement to free Khaleda Zia but the people did not respond to their calls.
