Awami League`s General Secretary Obaidul Quader at Farmgate on Saturday (Aug 3). Focus Bangla/File PhotoRaising allegation is a disease of BNP and the party has nothing to do anything without it, says Road Transport Minister Obaidul Quader.
“We hope that BNP would come back to positive and people-centric politics, leaving the practices of raising allegation,” he said on Friday (Oct 18).
Quader, who is the general secretary of ruling Awami League, was speaking to the media after placing a wreath on the grave of Shaheed Sheikh Russel on the occasion of his 56th birthday.
The senior AL leader said BNP is carrying out propaganda against the government and despite being a responsible opposition party, it is conducting irresponsible activities.
“After being failed in elections and waging movement, now they (BNP leaders) are looking for new issues. They find politics in all issues,” he was quoted by BSS as saying.
After safe road and quota reform movements, Quader said, BNP was trying to find an issue in Abrar killing. But people would not respond to its politics of finding new issues, he added.
Speaking of Sheikh Russel, Quader called the killing of the youngest son of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman an abominable crime in the human civilisation’s history.
“The assassination of Sheikh Russel is one of the despicable crimes in the history of human civilisation. Women and children were not targeted at any political killing in the history of civilisation…but women and children have fallen prey to political killing in Bangladesh,” he said.
Even, 10-year-old Russel did not escape the political killing as he along with most of the family members, including his father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was brutally killed on Aug 15, 1975,´Quader said in choked voices.
