Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday urged all concerned not to incite any chaos centring Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s forthcoming visit to Bangladesh.
The road transport and bridges minister made the call at a regular press conference on contemporary issues at his official residence on parliament premises in Dhaka, reports BSS.
Quader said a vested quarter is hatching a conspiracy to thwart the Indian premier’s visit marking the birth centenary of Bangabandhu and the golden jubilee of the independence of Bangladesh.
Mentioning that India was the main ally of Bangladesh during the 1971 Liberation War, the minister said Bangladesh invited the head of the government of India, not any particular individual, on the occasion of the twin celebrations.
He said Narendra Modi is an invited guest and his visit has no link with any other issue. About BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s comment that the party started getting organised to defeat the government, the AL general secretary said if BNP becomes politically organised, there is no problem.
“But if BNP carries out their evil attempts to create unrest in the name of a movement, the AL, along with the people, will face their evil acts,” he said.
“Now Awami League is very much united, strong and well-organised,” he said.
