BNP is sometimes known as Bangladesh complaint party and sometimes as terrorist party, says Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday said the BNP has now emerged as the "national pessimistic political party before the people.
"Sometimes BNP is known as 'Bangladesh complaint party', sometimes as 'terrorist party' to the people and now the BNP has turned into 'national pessimistic party’," he told a press conference on contemporary issues at his official residence in Dhaka.
About the comment of BNP leaders that the Awami League has become politically bankrupt, Quader said it seems that BNP leaders have now started thinking about the Awami League instead of thinking about themselves.
"The BNP indulges in self-satisfaction by creating such cock-and-bull stories," he said.
The Awami League general secretary said making such imaginary and hollow comments to hide its own failures is the BNP's old habit.
The BNP kept up its ill and negative politics, which is why it is gradually submerging in deep frustration, he said.
"Now the BNP has lost its characteristics for its efforts of strengthening ties with communal evil forces and defeated Liberation War enemies. The BNP has evolved into a Frankenstein of blind criticism and hateful politics, and thus it is making attacks on itself," he said.

Quader said though BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir talks big, the party leaders and workers are now suffering from mass-frustration and becoming desperate to seize power by hatching conspiracies after being derailed from people's expectations.
As the BNP's public support has hit rock bottom, it is now making hollow and absurd comments, he added.
The minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is leading the country with the people's trust, confidence and support.
The people know that the Awami League does not repress, rather it has freed the nation from repression and subjugation, he said.
"The people know that the Awami League does not loot public property, rather it ensures the security of people's lives and properties," he added.
Quader said the Awami League is a constitution-reliant democratic and disciplined political party and it stays ahead of all other political parties in terms of practising internal democracy.
Mentioning that the Awami League does not believe in politics of flattery, he said: "The BNP's trend of flattering leaders has actually become an art. The patent of politics of flattery belongs to the BNP."
