Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader stated that BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir claimed their procession is a victory procession, but the ruling party considers it a defeat procession.

Quader made these remarks during the peace rally of Awami League in front of the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh on Monday afternoon.

He mentioned that BNP achieved no outcomes from their talks with the European Union and US delegates.

"Sheikh Hasina has no reason to resign from the post of prime minister. She will lead the election as the prime minister, just like in other countries," he added.

Quader also stated: "We informed the Europeans and Americans that we want peace before, after, and during the election. Nobody wants a caretaker government except BNP. They still believe that they can bring their like-minded partisan caretaker government, as they did in 2001 and 2006. However, the caretaker government system has been abolished by the Supreme Court of the country. We didn't remove that system."

"We will conduct the election according to the constitution. There is no other way. We will not deviate from our stance," he added.

The Awami League general secretary urged party activists to refrain from any form of violence and work towards creating a peaceful environment.

Pointing out BNP's inconsistencies, he mentioned that BNP calls for a one-point movement at one moment and then presents 32 points at the next.

"Mirza Fakhrul said they will reconstruct the state, but we are saying there is no need for them to reconstruct the state. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will reconstruct it. When you were in power, what did you do? You only provided the infrastructure without electricity, but PM Sheikh Hasina ensured 100% electricity," Quader added.
