Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has given a 36-day ultimatum to BNP to give up their conspiracies against democracy.
Obaidul Quader, “They issued a 36-hour ultimatum for their leader’s treatment abroad when they couldn’t even protest for Khaleda Zia for 36 minutes. I’m giving them 36 days to get on the right path. We will together thwart BNP’s disruptive actions against the people,”.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, made these remarks as the chief guest at the peace rally organised by Dhaka Metropolitan North Awami League in Uttara, the capital on Monday afternoon.
He said, “BNP has relied on visa policy, and Awami League on the strength of the people. Elections will not be held in Bangladesh under anyone’s restrictions or influence.
The AL leader said, “We don’t care about any visa policy or restrictions. We liberated Bangladesh through blood, not to bow to any bans.”
He said that the BNP is unable to stand on its own, hence their reliance on US visa policies.
Earlier in the day, Awami League leaders and activists joined the peace rally and expressed their determination to remain in the field to counter all the anarchy caused by BNP-Jamaat.
Dhaka Metropolitan North Awami League President Sheikh Bazlur Rahman presided over the rally.
