’To BNP, democracy means distorting the history of Bangladesh’s independence’

BNP has again resorted to violence, failing to garner people’s support. To the party, democracy means distorting the history of Bangladesh’s independence.

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said this on Sunday while inaugurating a road construction project in Cox’s Bazar through video conference.

All parties have the right to carry out peaceful political programs, Quader said.

However, he warned that if any attempt is made to disturb the peace and disrupt daily life, the government will do what is necessary.

If BNP loses any election, it pins the blame on the government and the election commission, Quader said.

“And when BNP wins, the party claims that it could have won more votes had the government not intervened. Also, BNP’s role in strengthening democratic institutions has largely fallen short of people’s expectations.”

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the 80 kilometer Cox’s Bazar-Teknaf marine drive has allowed the visitors to view the sea in all its beautiful glory. “And initiatives have already been taken to expand it.”

“Work on the four-lane highway from Cox’s Bazar Link Road to Laboni Point would be completed soon, too.”
