Marking the day, Dhaka North City AL organized a discussion at 11:00am at Krishibid Institution auditorium in the capital where party General Secretary Obaidul Quader and other senior leaders of AL attended the programme.
In his speech AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader said, "Nobody can break the BNP's record of vote robbery in the history of Bangladesh."
He came up with the remark through videoconferencing from his official residence of Jatiya Sangsad.
Speaking as chief guest, Obaidul Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said, "The government always welcomes any peaceful progarmme of BNP. But, if BNP men create any anarchy in the name of movement, the government will take stern action against them aiming to protect public property." AL Presidium Member Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Organising Secretaries Ahmed Hossain and Mirza Azam attended the programme.
AL Presidium Member Abdur Rahman, Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif and other central leaders attended the programme.

Speaking as chief guest Jahangir Kabir Nanak said, "BNP's democracy is to establish anti-liberation forces. Their democracy is to create militancy in the country, to try to save the assassins of Bangabandhu."
"BNP wanted to depoliticize Bangladesh. They want to establish religion-based politics in this country. Those who want to create militancy in the country by communal forces will not be allowed to rise," he added.
