Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said BNP is giving the threat to oust the government but their threats will go in vain.
“There will be no benefit by threatening Awami League. Awami League leaders and workers take a position at streets, cities, districts, thanas, wards and alleys to remain alert against any conspiracy during the month of victory,” he said.
Quader came up with the statement while addressing the triennial council of Mymensingh district and city units of AL at Circuit House ground in Mymensingh on Saturday, according to BSS.
He said BNP founder military dictator Ziaur Rahman was the mastermind of the August 15, 1975 carnage while his son Tarique Rahman masterminded ghastly grenade attacks on the AL rally on August 21, 2004.
The AL general secretary said Tarique went abroad during the caretaker government's tenure, giving a bond that he would "not do politics anymore and took shelter on the bank of Thames River in London".
“Tarique is only shouting from London now, ” he added.
Mentioning the massive progress of the country, he said AL’s pledge of this term is to build a Smart Bangladesh as the previous pledge of Digital Bangladesh has been implemented.
