Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday called upon the people to be united under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to resist the evil communal forces.
“I urge the people, including all quarters, on behalf of the pro-liberation force to be united under the leadership of Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina to resist violence unleashed by the communal evil forces,” he said in a discussion organised by Bangladesh Awami League marking the Independence and National Day at its central office in Dhaka.
Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also joined the programme through video conferencing from here official residence Ganobhaban.
Referring to the mayhem staged in Dhaka, Chattogram and Brahmanbaria by the anti-India communal forces, Quader, also general secretary of the ruling Awami League, said they are envious of success of the golden jubilee celebration of independence and BNP is the patron of these evil forces.
“Has BNP any moral right to celebrate the golden jubilee of independence?’ asked the AL general secretary and said when BNP announced the programme for celebrating the occasion, a question arose before the nation about its moral ground.
After the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the senior ruling party leader said, BNP founder Ziaur Rahman brought religious character instead of non-sectarian secularism in the state, sharing the power of the state with identified war criminals.
Even later, Begum Khaleda Zia, wife of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman, honoured the anti-liberation forces by appointing them as ministers of her cabinet.
