DHAKA, June 10, 2021 (BSS)–Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said BNP’s politics of negativity and conspiracy is deadlier than invisible enemy coronavirus (Covid-19).

“Now there are two visible and invisible enemies in the country. Covid-19 is the invisible enemy while visible one is BNP. BNP’s politics of negativity and conspiracy is more dangerous than coronavirus,” he told a regular press conference at his official residence in the city.

Terming BNP as the patron of communal evil forces, Quader said BNP always talks about democracy but patronizes and nurtures communal forces.

He said there would be opponents and contestants in the political field but it is not fair to consider other parties as enemies.

“Responsible opposition party acts as partner of development. But BNP proves itself as cancer,” he said.

He said as BNP considers AL as its enemy, they were involved with the blue print of the assassinations of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members in 1975 and they were beneficiaries of the carnage.

As BNP considers Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina as its enemy, they launched grenade attacks on August 21 in broad daylight, he said.

The AL general secretary said BNP kills innocent people and damages public properties by carrying out arson attacks. When they stay in power, they submerge the country under corruption and loot properties of people, he added.

Quader said BNP fears the people, so they have stayed away from elections. “BNP is suffering from hallucination of power. Country’s development intensifies BNP’s pain. History shows those who are friend of BNP need no enemy,” he said.

Quader said BNP doesn’t want progress of the country rather it wishes ruin of the nation.

Those who harm the country’s independence and sovereignty for their lust of power, those who beg assistance to foreign force after losing morale in going to people, can make any kind of damage to the country for making harm to AL, he said.

The AL general secretary said the trial of BNP has already been started in the witness box of history as a failed political party. “Streets and vote box are evidences of it,” he mentioned.

He said BNP’s popularity has hit the rock bottom because of its politics of vengeance and falsehood.

Later, the minister virtually joined the meeting of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Road Transport and Bridges Ministry at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban.
