Obaidul Quader responds to BNP leader Mirza Fakhrul's statement to oust the government
Stating that the perspective of the 90s and 2021 is not the same, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said that BNP’s plan to create another mass uprising like the 90s is a daydream.
He made the remarks while addressing a briefing at his residence on Tuesday, in reply to the recent remarks of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Fakhrul on Monday called upon students and people to unite for "another mass uprising", like that of 1990, to oust the current government.
"Students and people overthrew the then dictatorial government through a mass uprising in the 1990s. Our leader Khaleda Zia led the movement. We need such a mass uprising again," said Fakhrul.
“The government can no longer be given time.”
In response to Fakhrul’s statement, the general secretary of the Awami League said: "Who is he to fix the time of the government?"
Quader also said the government has been given time by the constitution of the country and the people of this country while the owner of power is Allah and the voters of the country.
Mentioning the National Press Club as a place for organizing meetings of journalists, cultural, social, and various organizations, Quader said BNP has turned the press club into a political platform.
BNP is now holding political rallies inside the press club which is illegal and unacceptable, he added.
