PV Desk : Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said BNP’s silence on the court verdict over the 16th constitutional amendment has proved that the party has accepted its founder Ziaur Rahman illegally captured state power.
“The Supreme Court verdict mentioned that Ziaur Rahman had illegally usurped the state power. But, BNP did not make any comment about the (court) judgement. So, it seems the party has accepted the matter of Zia’s illegal capture of state power,” he said.
The AL general secretary said this while distributing relief goods among flood-affected people in Syedpur upazila stadium area in the district.
The minister assured that the government would stay beside the flood victim until their rehabilitation.
“I am giving you assurance that distribution of relief goods will continue, medical teams will continue to work and the flood victims will be rehabilitated … we would always stay beside you,” he told the flood victims.
