Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday called upon BNP to return to the positive trend of politics in the New Year.
He was speaking at a view-exchange with official of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) through videoconferencing from his official residence in the capital.
About BNP’s announcement of ousting the government through mass-movement in the New Year, Quader said the people now laugh at BNP’s announcement of movement as there is no issue of waging mass-upsurge in the country now.
Mentioning that the Awami League government has already passed 12 years, he expressed doubt over BNP’s ability to wage a movement.
He said the interests of the country and the people are not getting priority in BNP’s political strategy, “So, I call upon you (BNP) to return to positive politics in the New Year.”
Turning to his own party, the AL general secretary said under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, the party will be made more organised and smarter by strengthening its internal discipline.
