Govt. will not meddle with CCC poll: Obaidul Quader

Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader has said the government will not interfere in the upcoming Chittagong City Corporation elections.

Speaking at a regular briefing from his official residence on Monday morning, Quader said the people of Chittagong would vote for whomever they wanted and the government would extend full cooperation to the commission in playing an independent and authoritative role in holding free and fair elections.

Noting that the Sheikh Hasina government is working tirelessly to establish a hunger and poverty free Bangladesh, the Awami League general secretary said the Bangabandhu family is a unique example of honesty in the politics of this country.

He said that everyone should learn from this family to be honest and respectful.

Obaidul Quader called upon the leaders and workers of Awami League and allied organizations to be dedicated to the service of the people without showing their power.

Stating that power is not permanent, Obaidul Quader said that leaders, activists and followers should focus on serving the people and avoid the lust for enjoyment.

Obaidul Quader also said that the struggle for building a prosperous Bangladesh under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina must continue for the development of the country.

In order to realize Bangabandhu’s dream of establishing a non-communal state and fight against the enemies of democracy, Obaidul Quader said that the future politics will be the politics of purity, the spirit of liberation war and scientific.

He said the misdeeds and conspiracies of those who want to push the country back must be dealt with politically and everyone must be united for that goal.

In response to a complaint by a party alleging that the government was obstructing their peaceful movement, the Awami League general secretary said that spreading violence in the name of movement, burning people’s property in the name of procession could not be a peaceful movement.

The minister said the people of this country do not believe that those who pursue the politics of killing, sponsoring terrorism and corruption will carry out peaceful protests.

He also referred to the BNP as the father of the politics of revenge.
