BNP trying to gather people in its rallies in exchange of money: Obaidul Quader
Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has alleged that BNP is trying to gather people in their rallies in exchange of money.
“Now BNP is trying to gather people in their rallies in exchange of money as BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir is sleeping on a sack of money,” Obaidul Quader said while addressing the council of Awami League’s Cumilla City unit in Cumilla on Saturday, BSS reported.
“BNP does politics of killings as the party founder Ziaur Rahman was involved with Bangabandhu killing and his son Tarique Rahman masterminded the gruesome August 21 massacre,” the road transport and bridges minister said.
Quader said subsequently military dictator Ziaur Rahman rewarded the killers of August 15 and gave them jobs in Bangladesh missions abroad.
The AL general secretary said BNP had made its utmost efforts to erase Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s name from Bangladesh’s history but they failed.
“As much as BNP wanted to erase Bangabandhu’s name, they got erased and contracted,” he mentioned.
“BNP always talks about the disaster but the party itself is in a great disaster and the people should be saved from the hands of this evil force,” he said.
Pointing to BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman, he said command is being given from the bank of the River Thames in London and BNP leaders and workers are making daydreaming.
“Their dreams will evaporate as like camphor,” he said.
Dubbing Tarique as the prince of Hawa Bhaban, the BNP government’s alternative powerhouse, Quader said Tarique, who is a fugitive convict in several cases, masterminded the August 15 grenade attacks on AL rally and other killings.
“The people will not accept any convict,” he said.
