Awami League General  Secretary Obaidul Quader today said the leaders of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) do not understand the  generosity of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

“The BNP leaders do not understand the generosity that  Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has shown over the holding  of BNP rallies and meetings,” he told a discussion.

The AL organised the discussion at Bangabandhu  International Conference Centre here, marking the 47th  death anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu  Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the National Mourning Day.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said  Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has instructed all the AL  men not to create obstacles to holding the rallies of BNP. 

“Leader (Sheikh Hasina), we understand the meaning of  your generosity, but they (BNP leaders) don’t understand  that,” he added.

The AL general secretary said: “They say you (the  Premier) are doing this under the pressure of foreigners.  A slogan is chanted from London and it is reflected in  Paltan. What slogan? Take back Bangladesh….Bangladesh  became world champion in graft five times in a row.  Where will they go by taking back?” Overcoming the uneven path of crisis, Bangladesh is maintaining stability under the leadership of Prime  Minister Sheikh Hasina and the country is still  progressing, he said. 

“We still have the foreign exchange reserve of US$ 40 to  42 billion…in Bangladesh, now the rickshaw pullers also  talk about the reserve. Sri Lanka has run out of its  reserves. Pakistan’s reserves are at the bottom. Because of  this, they (BNP leaders) also see nightmares about  Bangladesh,” he said.
