Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday accused BNP of spreading propaganda centring lockdown after their failure ‘evil politics’ over vaccine.
“Doesn’t BNP actually want that the coronavirus situation comes under control? BNP’s double standard remarks could discourage the people in staying home,” he said while addressing a programme through a videoconference from his residence in Dhaka, reports BSS.
The programme was arranged at Awami League president’s political office to distribute Covid-19 protective equipments to representatives of several journalists’ organisations and religious institutions.
About BNP leaders’ allegation that there is no democracy in country, Quader questioned what BNP has done to strengthen democracy.
BNP has now turned out to be ‘peddler’ of democracy after doing undemocratic practices and creating obstacles in every step of taking ahead the democracy, he said.
The minister said BNP had ruined the country’s democracy and given an institutional shape to corruption.
BNP will not be successful in their evil acts to thwart the country’s march forward, as the people want development and progress, he said.
He hoped that the ongoing struggle under the leadership of Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to guide the country towards development, progress and stronger democracy will be successful with the cooperation of people of all strata.
