'Quader favors BNP by talking much'

  • Print

Bangladesh Nationalist Party's (BNP) Vice Chairman Abdullah Al Noman said on Monday that the more Awami League Secretary General Obaidul Quader talks, the more he benefits BNP. Abdullah Al Noman said: "Obaidul Quader speaks too much in such a way which favors BNP leaders and activists. His antagonistic words always encourage us to firmly confront our political opponents. That's why BNP welcomes all comments from Obaidul Quader."

Abdullah Al Noman made these remarks on Monday at a discussion program in Dhaka Reporters Unity. Denouncing Awami League's ruling history, Abdullah Al Noman said: "Awami League has a history of eliminating its rivals. Populist leader Mawlana Bhashani established Awami League but he was ousted from Awami League during 1957 by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman."

Awami League's inner autocratic visage has become exposed in recent times, Abdullah Al Noman commented. BNP abstained from the last election but it is interested to contest in the upcoming polls, he added. BNP is determined to get all its leaders and activists released including Begum Khaleda Zia before the next election, Abdullah Al Noman said during Monday's discussion. He reiterated BNP's demand to host the forthcoming election under a nonpartisan government. He also demanded to deploy army in Gazipur and Khulna city corporation polls.
 
The discussion was organized by Bangladesh Youth Forum marking the sixth year of BNP leader Iyas Ali's disappearance. The program was also addressed by BNP joint secretary general Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal, Abu Naser Mohammad Rahmatullah and Muslim League's secretary general Julfiqar Bulbul Chowdhury.
