AL never obstructs BNP rally

Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said his party never creates any obstacles to BNP’s rally rather the AL government is providing administrative assistance in holding their programmes.

He said this in a press conference at Setu Bhaban in the capital.

Quader said if BNP rallies see gathering of people, they say the government has failed. On the contrary, if their rallies couldn’t gather people, they shift its liability to the government, saying obstacles were created to holding their rally.

Neither the government nor the AL creates any barrier to BNP rallies and it won’t do so in the future, he mentioned.

He said there was no transport strike during BNP’s Chattogram rally but it didn’t see much gathering of people and even the public rally venue was not filled.

About BNP’s allegation that bus strike was declared to obstruct BNP’s Khulna rally, Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said the government or AL didn’t interfere in it too.

Noting that transport owners and workers’ association had called strike, he said if the association felt insecurity due to BNP rally, what the government or AL can do there.

Asked about BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s allegation that AL had created one-eleven, he questioned who were in power before the crisis period.

At that period, BNP created debacle by increasing the retirement age of judges by amending the law with a view to making the party’s international affairs secretary KM Hasan as chief adviser to the caretaker government, he recalled.

BNP made the then President Iajuddin Ahmed as the chief adviser of the caretaker government, he said.

The minister said BNP created a list of 1.23 crore fake voters and constituted highly controversial ‘MA Aziz’ Election Commission to ruin the entire election system.

Under the circumstances, army-backed caretaker government was formed during the one-eleven.
