The General Secretary accuses the opposition party’s politics as undemocratic
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday described BNP as the flag-bearer of political intolerance and vengeance, and said that the people do not believe BNP would establish democracy as the party itself conducts politics in undemocratic ways.
“BNP is the bearer of malevolent and intolerant politics. The people don’t believe anymore that BNP will establish democracy in the country by following an undemocratic path,” he said while speaking at a press conference at BRTA head office.
Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said AL always talks about BNP’s practicing of ill-politics and now pro-BNP intellectuals have also started talking about the party’s irregularities.
Though BNP always utters hollow words of democracy, a pro-BNP intellectual has revealed BNP’s undemocratic practices inside the party as well as the election process of the party’s leadership, he said.
He said BNP is suffering from jealousy as their evil acts are being revealed.
Mentioning that BNP leaders are constantly spreading hatred against the government, the minister said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government is tolerating these acts with its liberalism.
He said BNP’s politics is actually going through a deep crisis throughout the last era and that people have no trust in BNP because of the party’s evil politics.
“BNP is suffering from frustration as the people have no trust and confidence in it. Their politics of falsehood is liable for that,” he said.
Earlier, the minister joined a view exchange with officials of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA).
BRTA Chairman Nur Mohammad Mazumder was present, among others.
Though international flights with different countries remained suspended during the Covid-19 crisis, the resumption of flight operations with different countries helps reopen manpower exports, he said.

The minister said delay or sluggishness in providing licenses can damage the country's achievements, so more delays cannot be accepted by any means.
Quader also gave directives for preparing licenses in Bengali.
