Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said BNP is making ill attempts to create a chaotic situation in the country in the name of mass movement.
"BNP is daydreaming of mass movement. But Bangabandhu's daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's development activities and achievements have put a dark shadow of a crisis on BNP's movement. Their dream of a mass movement is now tantamount to nightmare," he said.
Quader, road transport and bridges minister, said this at a press conference at his official residence in Dhaka, reports BSS.
He said, “The people are so happy over the development and achievement of the government that they don't respond to BNP's repeated calls for movement in the last 13 years.”
"The people didn't respond to BNP's call for movement in the last 13 years and I believe they will do the same in future too. So, BNP's desire for movement will turn into despair soon," he observed.
BNP is dreaming of making a revolution in the style of Khameini (Iranian politician and religious leader Ali Khameini who led a revolution in Iran) by bringing back its convicted fugitive acting Chairman Tarique Rahman from the bank of River Thames by creating a so-called mass movement, he mentioned.
In response to BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir's comment that the movement has spread all over the country from Dhaka University and the party leaders and workers will not return home until the government is ousted, Quader said: "Through this comment, we are noticing evil-attempts to create a bad situation in the country."
About another comment of Fakhrul that the BNP took to the streets to restore democracy not to bring any individual or party to power, the AL general secretary said the people think that this comment is an extreme falsehood and fraudulence with the nation.
It is nothing but falsehood and fraudulence that the party, which had 'killed' democracy during its tenure, would restore democracy after going to power again, he added.
