Poll boycott to turn BNP into a party like Muslim League: Quader


PV Desk : Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said BNP will take part in the next national polls in any circumstances.

“If BNP does not take part in the next elections, their fate will be like that of Muslim League,” he said, while addressing a commemorative meeting at Haildhor High School ground in Anwara Upazila here.

Anwara Upazila and Karnaphuli Upazila units of Awami League organized the meeting marking the 5th death anniversary of AL former presidium member Akhtaruzzaman Chowdhury Babu.

BNP is a haphazard, disordered and weak party, said Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, adding: “Every leader of this party (BNP) speaks differently at different times”.

AL Anwara Upazila unit President Abdul Mannan presided over the meeting that was addressed by Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Sate Minister for Land Saifuzzaman Chowdhury, AL Organising Secretary AKM Enamul Haque Shamim, Deputy Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua and Deputy Publicity Secretary Aminul Islam.

Stressing the need of unity among the AL leaders and activists, Quader said none would be able to defeat a united AL in polls.

He urged the party leaders and activists to remain united and advised them to settle all sorts of divisions in the party by January next.
