Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the black chapters of history of assassination of Bangabandhu and most of his family members through August 15 carnage and the assassination attempts to kill his daughter Sheikh Hasina through gruesome grenade attacks on August 21 in 2004 were intertwined.
He said August 15 carnage's prime target was Bangabandhu and August 21 grenade attack's major target was to assassinate Bangabandhu's daughter Sheikh Hasina.
