Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the BNP, as a party, cannot go missing through boycotting upcoming general election for only one person.
"Although BNP chairperson Khaldela Zia may not join the upcoming general election, BNP will certainly take part in it," Obaidul Quader said.
The road transport and bridges minister came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at the Circuit House in Feni on Saturday.
"BNP leaders themselves are saying that their party is powerful even without Khaleda Zia. We would to compete with that powerful party in next general election," he said.
Quader further said: "BNP doesn't know about the systematic movement. Attacking police in front of the High Court, vandalising Bangladeshi Embassy in London are the example of BNP's systematic movement."
According to UNB, the Awami League leader said BNP has lost its capacity to launch any movement.
"BNP has also failed to receive any response from people due to the widespread development across the country by Awami League government," he said.
