BNP has no positive things to seek votes from the people, he says

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the party candidates clinched sweeping victories in the second phase municipality polls too as the people want the country's development and progress.

"The second phase municipality polls witnessed massive voter turnout. The government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is maintaining the trend of development in all sectors. As the people want more development works from the government, Awami League candidates gained landslide victories," he said.

Quader was addressing the inaugural ceremony of a four-day workshop on fire safety, joining it virtually from his official residence on the parliament premises in Dhaka on Monday. 

He said BNP candidates also gained victory at the municipalities where they remained active and popular. 

Even two rebel candidates of BNP also clinched victory, he said, adding that now BNP is finding no flaws and claiming that the vote margin was bigger.

It is natural that the Awami League candidates won the polls in large margin because of the government's unprecedented developments and achievements, he said.

He went on saying that BNP has no positive things to seek votes from the people.

Quader said those who carried out arson attacks to kill people and made the country world champions in corruption, they have nothing to say to the people for seeking votes.

BNP has lost voters' confidence as they did not conduct campaigns and go to polling centres, he said.

"The victory of Awami League candidates is the victory of development. The difference of huge margin of votes means that the people boycotted BNP's negative politics." 

The Awami League general secretary said the victory of the party in the municipality polls is the revelation of people's stance against extreme communalism.

He said BNP should take lessons from the polls.

Quader expressed sorrow at the death of the councillor-elect in a conflict after the second phase polls and said those who are involved in the incident will be brought to justice and no mercy will be shown to culprits whoever they are.

He asked the law enforcement agencies to remain stricter in the next phase municipality polls to avert any conflicts and chaos.

Turning to fire safety, he urged the government officials to keep in mind that protecting the lives and properties of others should be the prime target during any disasters including cyclone and flood.
