“BNP is carrying out arson attacks on innocent people but they say that they are waging movement for the people. This is nothing but a farce with the people,” he told a special representatives conference of Natore district AL at Nabab Siraj-ud-Dowla Govt College auditorium in Natore, reports BSS.
Quader, who is also and Road Transport and Bridges Minister, joined the function through a videoconferencing from his official residence on parliament premises in Dhaka.
Mentioning that the patrons of arson attacks and terrorist acts would be found out, he said BNP is again hatching conspiracy to fish in muddled water.
“BNP again started arson terrorism as like as they did in 2014. They set fire to buses . . . they are trying to harm the communal harmony,” he said, adding that all offenders will be brought to justice on the basis of evidences.
Quader said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir is making falsehood and trying to shift the liability of arson attacks to others.
He said AL along with the people will give a befitting reply to BNP’s terrorist acts.
About forming committees of different units of the party, the AL general secretary urged the party leaders and workers to bring dedicated workers, who stayed with the party in its crisis period, in the committees to make the organization stronger.
