Awami League General Secretary and Minister for Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Quader has said that any political party including BNP should come to power in a democratic way with the mandate of the people.

Obaidul Quader said this while briefing his office at the Secretariat on Thursday.

The bridge minister further said, "It is as clear today as the day that the BNP as a political party has not been able to understand the psychological change of the people with the passage of time. Bangladesh or the people of the country are no longer in the position that anyone can snatch state power through conspiracy if they want to. '

The general secretary of the Awami League thinks that the election held in accordance with the constitutional provisions is the only way to change the power in a democratic manner.

Demanding an apology to the BNP, Obaidul Quader said, "Whenever the BNP has come to power, it has hurt the democratic consciousness and non-communal values ​​of this country."

The Awami League general secretary said, "After coming to power in 2001, the BNP inflicted unprecedented atrocities on the minority community, using rape as a political tool, killing 21,000 Awami League leaders and activists and injuring thousands of leaders and activists." The countrymen have not forgotten the painful memories of that cruel time. '

The bridge minister said, "The infernal grenade attack was carried out on August 21 with the direct help of Tarique Rahman to suppress the opposition. The prime target was Deshratna Sheikh Hasina, daughter of Bangabandhu, the center of democratic consciousness in Bangladesh. Today, the BNP should seek unconditional forgiveness from the Awami League and the people, especially Sheikh Hasina, for those unforgivable sins. '

Obaidul Quader, general secretary of the Awami League, said in response to the statement of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that the 'Awami League will not find a way to escape.' Did BNP leader Tareq Rahman leave the country on a bond and flee to London saying he would not do politics again? '
