Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder on Friday urged all to stay united so that no evil force can hatch conspiracy to tarnish the image of the country.
"If we remain united, no (evil) power will dare to tarnish the image of Bangladesh," he said. He came up with the call while addressing a tri-annual conference of Upazila Awami League at Nazipur College ground at Patnitala upazila in Naogaon as the chief guest.
Pointing out the BNP-Jamaat, the minister said that those, who do not participate in the elections, are the real killers of country's democracy. "They (BNP-Jamaat) should be tried in a people's court for such activity," he added.
The BNP is spreading the stink of communalism only to tarnish the reputation of the current government, he said, adding that insulting the holy Qur'an or attacking temples was a part of it. He added that Bangladesh is now a role model in the world under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
As long as Sheikh Hasina is in power, no one will be able to create obstacles in the development of Bangladesh, he continued.
With acting president of Upazila Awami League Abdul Khaleq in the chair, the programme was attended, among others, by Central Awami League Organizing Secretary SM Kamal Hossain, District Awami League President Abdul Malek, Naogaon-2 lawmaker Shahiduzzaman Sarkar and Naogaon-5 lawmaker Barrister Nizam Uddin Jalil.
