BSS: Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today urged the party leaders and workers to stand by the people badly affected by Cyclone ‘Sitrang’, claiming that the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government will always remain beside the people.
He made this call while speaking at a press briefing at his Secretariat office here. Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister said, BNP is a party whose leaders have honey on their mouths but poison in their hearts. Commenting that the BNP leaders talk about democracy but nurtures the practice of looting and opportunity, he said the BNP delivers the speaking of freedom but patronises anti-liberation and communal forces. The AL general secretary said the BNP talks about the people’s rights to vote but the party held a voter-less polls on February 15 in 2006 and enlisted about 1.25 crore fake voters during their regime. Responding to the statements of the BNP leaders, he said the AL had waged a movement for the caretaker government to establish the people’s rights to vote and food but the BNP at that time opposed it.
