Quader slams BNP for occupy-the-street threat
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said that BNP seeks to turn the country into a failed state through planned apolitical approach. Quader said this during a briefing at his residence this morning. Regarding opposition BNP leaders order to their workers to occupy the streets, the Awami League leader said that roads are not the ancestral property of anyone and the streets belong to the people. So like in the past, if chaos is created again in the name of occupying the roads, the people will give a befitting reply. Stating that the Awami League will soon be seen on the streets, Quader said that BNP's shouting is just a tactic of hiding their failures. He said that BNP wants to return to power to create opportunity for looting public wealth again and to block the immense potential of the country by creating Hawa Bhaban. The people will never give them that opportunity again, he said.
