'Awami League is the most tolerant political party of the country'

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday said Awami League never does politics of vengeance as it is not good for democracy.

“Awami League is the most tolerant political party of the country. It witnessed the brutality of August 15 massacre, November 3 jail killings and August 21 grenade attacks but did not do politics of vengeance,” he said while inaugurating BRTC double-decker bus service on Dhaka-Narayanganj route.

The minister joined the function via videoconference from his official residence on parliament premises.

Quader said democracy is a developing process as it flourishes through participation of all political parties and nurturing of it.

But the irony is that though BNP talks about democracy, it stays far away from playing the role needed to strengthen democracy, he added.

“But, Awami League is a pro-people party. It always stayed with the people in the past and it will do that in the future too,” he said.

About BNP’s allegation that if anyone makes criticism of the government, he or she becomes disappeared, Quader said BNP is spreading their traditional falsehood by making such fabricated and misleading comments.

He urged BNP to refrain from presenting suck false information.
