'There are no problems created by [Awami League] rebels in the Dhaka city elections'

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has hinted that the ruling party will keep its rebel candidates for councillors' posts in the upcoming Dhaka North and South City Corporation electoral race. 

He said: “There are no problems created by [Awami League] rebels in the Dhaka city elections.”

Quader, the Road Transport and Bridges minister, was talking to journalists following a secretariat level meeting of the Awami League’s central working committee at the party president’s political office in Dhanmondi in the capital on Tuesday.

Regarding rebel candidates, Quader said: "There is no situation created by them that is hindering the city polls. We cannot term them as troublemakers."

The minister also felt that the rebels were not causing any trouble within the party.

The Awami League general secretary took a dig at journalists, telling them: "It is the party's internal matter. It is not a headache for you."

Quader alleged that the BNP was inventing stories of conspiracy to foil the atmosphere of the city polls.

"They have even hired terrorists from outside Dhaka to occupy polling centers. I hope the Election Commission will look into the matter," he said.

AL leaders Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Abdur Rahman, Dipu Moni, Hasan Mahmud, AFM Bahauddin Nasim, BM Mozammel Haque, SM Kamal, Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon, Biplab Barua, Aminul Islam Amin, Sayem Khan were present, among others, at the meeting.
