Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said some miscreants in guise of students attacked the Awami League president’s Dhanmondi political office.
The road transport and bridges minister alleged that BNP-Jamaat axis is responsible for the misdeed, reports BSS.
“It was a planned attack. Some attackers were seen carrying firearms. They are now out to shift the responsibility of the attack to the students,” he told a press conference at the AL president’s Dhanmondi office on Saturday.
Quader said BNP-Jamaat perpetrated the attack to divert the students’ non-political movement to a dirty way of agitation.
He said 17 leaders and workers of Awami League received injures in the attack.
The minister said they are now anxious about the safety of the agitating students.
Central leaders of the party were present in the press conference.
