Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said a conspiracy is still going on to wage another movement like recent movement for safer roads.

"A conspiracy is on to wage such a movement again. Clandestine meetings are being held in the country and abroad. We're alert and prepared enough in this regard," he said.

The road transport and bridges minister made the remarks while addressing a discussion at the Bangladesh National Museum on Saturday, reports UNB.

He claimed that the opposition conspired to make gains mixing intruders into the peaceful movement of students.

Awami League publicity and publications subcommittee arranged the programme.

Quader said BNP and its fundamental cohorts tried to cash in on the quota reform movement after receiving directives from London.

"Something dangerous could have happened but the Prime Minister handled the situation," he said.

About BNP Vice-chairman Abdullah Al Noman's comments that they will join the polls if there is as shift in the present electoral process, he said election process is a constitutional provision. "It's an unreasonable demand."

Awami League organising secretary AKM Enamul Haque Shamim and member secretary of the party's publicity and publications subcommittee Hasan Mahmud were also present on the occasion.
