Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said that a group of vested quarter is hatching conspiracy centering verdict over the 16th constitutional amendment to halt the country’s peace and progress.
He slammed BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, its Standing Committee Member Moudud Ahmed as they have become over enthusiastic “as if the court will put them in the state power”.
“They (BNP) engaged in hatching a new conspiracy as part of their politics of vengeance to halt the country’s development and progress. We will not allow them to meet their dream,” said Quader, also road transport and bridges minister.
He was addressing a rally marking the national mourning day on August 15 jointly organised by Dhaka north and south unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League at the Central Shaheed Minar in Dhaka this noon.
Quader sharply criticised Moudud Ahmed as he earlier termed the judiciary as bias when he lost his Gulshan house in legal battle.
“But soon after the court verdict over the 16th amendment, this very man has claimed that the judiciary is independent.”
After being failed in waging a successful movement, BNP did not take part in the last general election fearing to face a serious debacle, Quader said adding that the party is now searching new issue to topple the ruling Awami League.
He called upon the leaders and activists of the party’s student front to find out the conspirators so that they cannot knit the net of the conspiracy.
Quader also rejected BNP’s allegation that Awami League is plotting to cling on to power through backdoor and said his party does not believe in such attempt like Ziaur Rahman, who captured power at gunpoint and then formed BNP.
