Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday said those, who do evil politics, cannot repair a state.
"BNP had killed the country's democracy and destroyed the state. They announced that they will repair the state. How they will do that? They do evil politics. Those who do evil politics, they cannot repair the state rather they destroy the state," he said.
Quader was addressing a peace rally on the premises of Shyamoli Square, arranged by Dhaka City North AL in protest of ‘BNP-Jamaat's anti-state conspiracy, anarchy and propaganda’, according to BSS.
He said AL leaders and workers remain alert to resist BNP's anarchy. "We will have to resist terrorism and anti-liberation forces," he said.
The minister said BNP demanded the release of its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir through the statement of intellectuals.
"Fakhrul Islam is their (intellectuals) friend. Intellectuals issued a statement saying that Fakhrul Islam is sick. When Father of the Nation was assassinated on August 15, 1975, did you (intellectuals) issue a statement?" he said.
He said when four national leaders were killed inside Dhaka jail and Ahsanullah Master was killed, the intellectuals didn't protest.
AL Presidium Member Lt Col (retd) Muhammad Faruk Khan, Organising Secretaries Mirza Azam and SM Kamal Hossain, Health Affairs Secretary Dr Rokeya Sultana, Dhaka City North AL President Sheikh Bazlur Rahman and General Secretary SM Mannan Kachi also addressed the rally.
