Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has alleged that BNP is working secretly to bring someone unelected to power like the 1/11 government being failed in anti-government movement.

He made the remarks while exchanging views with journalists on contemporary issues at a press conference at his secretariat office in Dhaka on Sunday (February 5, 2023).

Quader said, "Once the BNP fails in movement, it follows the path of arson, terrorism and there were such instances in the past. The concern is that they are still going to do the same."

Also the road transport and bridges minister, Quader said as the movement of the BNP has lost its way, the party has taken a path of silent road march now. "The people have no engagement in their [BNP's] movement."

Noting that intensive monitoring is going on to examine whether the BNP is hatching plots of conspiracies in the name of the movement, he said the BNP had many kinds of movements like long-march and short-march.

"There are 56,000 square miles, not so far. Where will you go? You [BNP leaders] went outside of the country for lobbying but no result came," the Awami League general secretary said.   

The party has no objection to any government except Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's one and it is very clear from its activities that the party has an ill intention, Quader said.

"The Awami League has taken position on the streets and it will remain on the streets."

The minister said if the main political parties of the country take part in the next general elections, voter turnout will increase.

"The Awami League does not want to score on an empty field. We hope that the BNP would join the next national elections. We are getting informed that they [BNP leaders] are taking preparation secretly for the next polls," he said.

About the upcoming presidential polls, Quader said the Awami League will announce its candidate in time for the presidential polls.

Replying to a question over low voters' turnout in the recent by-polls, he said people of all countries of the world show less interest in the by-polls as there is no issue of changing a government.
