Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said a mass wave has been created in favour of ‘Boat’, the electoral symbol of AL, across the country. On the other hand, the popularity of BNP has been decreasing day by day, he added.
He said the people of the country would opt for honest, courageous and sagacious leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the spirit of the Liberation War in the next elections. It will also prove that the countrymen is not in favour of the communal forces -- Jamaat and BNP, he added.
The AL general secretary said, “Our vow is to become victorious in the polls and uphold the spirit of Liberation War by defeating communal forces.
