The Road Transport and Bridges minister said BNP has failed to gain people's faith as a responsible opposition

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday called upon all, regardless of party affiliation, to work together to tackle coronavirus.

Quader made the urge after paying homage to national leader Sher-e-Bangla AK Fazlul Huq marking his 59th death anniversary.

The Awami League leader, on behalf of the party, placed wreaths at the grave of the national leader around 9am maintaining proper health guidelines.

They also offered special Munajaat for the eternal peace of the departed soul following the recitation of Surah Fatiha from the Holy Quran.

He said all countrymen should stand by the people during the pandemic.

Mentioning that BNP has failed to stage any movement as well as winning elections, the Road Transport and Bridges minister said "BNP has failed to gain people's faith as a responsible opposition."

He also said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working restlessly to improve the fate of the common people.

“Many individuals do not work for the people when they come to power, but leaders like Sher-e-Bangla AK Fazlul Huq and the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman were exceptions. Following their path, Bangabandhu daughter Sheikh Hasina is doing the same,” said the Awami League senior leader.

Sher-e-Bangla AK Fazlul Huq was born on October 26, 1873, at his maternal uncle’s house at Saturia, a village in the southern part of the district of Bakerganj while his ancestral house was at Chakhar, a village 14 miles away from Barisal town.

Huq was an eminent public leader who had held many high political posts including the mayor of Calcutta (1935), chief minister of undivided Bengal (1937-1943) and East Bengal (1954), home minister of Pakistan (1955) and governor of East Pakistan (1956-58).

From 1913 to 1916, Huq served as the Secretary of the Bengal Provincial Muslim League and Joint Secretary of the All India Muslim League. Then he served as the president of the All India Muslim League from 1916 to 1921.
