Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday said BNP has turned into the spokesperson of the defeated communal forces of the Liberation War.

He was addressing a discussion marking National Mourning Day at Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) head office here joining it virtually.

Quader said now BNP has forgotten its identity and position while doing politics for serving interests of the defeated forces of the Liberation War.

About BNP leaders’ comment that AL doesn’t believe in Liberation War spirit, he said by making such comments, BNP is again clearly exposing their anti-liberation characteristics to the people.

Comparing BNP’s comments as ‘the devil listening to the scriptures’, he said BNP leaders are now talking about spirit of Liberation War, if they have minimum level of modesty, they could not say that.

The AL general secretary said as like as post-Covid-19 complications, BNP is suffering from complexities on the Liberation War spirit by staying with and doing politics with defeated forces of Liberation War.

“You (BNP) brought scopes for defeated forces of Liberation War to perform politics on this soil. You gave scopes to anti-liberation forces for using the country’s national flag on their vehicles,” he said.

Quader said BNP made damages to the Liberation War spirit step by step and now they are trying to prove them innocents. The people will never accept their evil attempts, he said.

“BNP’s target is to make looting in the name of democracy. BNP’s evil face behind the mask has now been exposed to people. The people don’t want to see such disguised force in state power,” he said.

Mentioning that BRTC is a state-owned institution, the minister urged all concerned to take measures to bring back BRTC on its trend of earning profits.

Road Transport and Highways Division Secretary Md Nazrul Islam and BRTC Chairman Md Tajul Islam joined the virtual discussion, among others.
