Quader blasts BNP for complaining to foreigners
Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said BNP has nothing other than complaining to foreigners after its failure in both the election and its movement.
He also described the remarks of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir over the national election as 'delirium of a failed politician'.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, came up with the remarks while talking to reporters before a joint meeting of Awami League secretariat and the party's different associate bodies at its Bangabandhu Avenue office, reports UNB.
"They (BNP) couldn't wage a movement over the last 10 years. We thank them as they joined the national election. But they utterly failed in the election, too," he said.
Quader further said, "What can be their (BNP's) resort now as they have failed in its movement and the election? Now they're complaining to foreigners and it's their old habit."
He said Awami League was more united during the 11th parliamentary election than in the past. "We achieved a massive victory as we could show a stronger unity through excellent coordination under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina."
The Awami League general secretary said their President Sheikh Hasina's strong stance against evil and communal forces also helped the party get an unforgettable victory in the election.
The minister said their party will celebrate the victory through a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on January 19.
At the beginning of the meeting, one minute silence was observed paying homage to party former secretary general Syed Ashraful Islam.
Four days after being elected an MP of the 11th parliament, Awami League Presidium member and Public Administration Minister Syed Ashraful Islam died of lung cancer at a hospital in Thailand on Thursday night at the age of 67.
