BNP’s ill-politics will have boomerang effects for them, says the Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said that BNP needs “political isolation” now as the party is infected with a more “dangerous virus than Covid-19.”
“The BNP is infected with a more deadly virus than coronavirus, whose symptoms are negativity, falsehood, conspiracy, and arson terrorism.
“BNP now needs political isolation,” he said at a press conference at his official residence in Dhaka.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said people think that the adverse impacts of the virus are rooted in BNP.
“BNP is doing the politics of shame over the coronavirus pandemic. At one moment they say that lockdown is necessary and on the other, they protest it. The BNP’s double standard policy and ill politics over Covid-19 are making people confused,” he added.
The ruling party general secretary said BNP called upon the students and labourers to unite to oust the government but they did not pay heed to the party’s call, and even the general people have no confidence in them.
“When the leaders and workers of Awami League and its associate bodies are standing by the helpless and jobless people amid the Covid-19 pandemic and asking people to follow the health guidelines, BNP is trying to create anarchy in the country with the help of its communal allies,” he further said.
Mentioning that BNP is the father of arson terrorism in this country and one day their houses will be burnt into ashes in the fire too, Quader said adding, “As they have failed in waging a movement against the government, they are now riding on the shoulder of Hefazat.”
“BNP’s ill-politics will have boomerang effects for them,” he further added.
Later, Quader inaugurated the construction work of a new eight-lane bridge at Aminbazar on the Dhaka-Aricha Highway under the Dhaka Road Zone.
He informed that a project has already been undertaken to construct three bridges on the Dhaka-Aricha Highway at Aminbazar, Salehpur, and Nayarhat.
The second Aminbazar Bridge is also being constructed under this project, he added.
Considering the plight of the people, Quader said: “The government has decided to introduce public transport in eight cities on certain conditions.”
“However, the government will take stern action if the vehicles ply without fulfilling the conditions.”
The minister lastly said there are allegations that many public transports are not following the government orders and charging extra fare from the passengers.
