AL ready to tackle anarchy: Obaidul Quader


Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday asked his party leaders and activists to remain vigilant about the possible anarchy by the BNP ahead of Saturday’s anti-government rally.


He came up with the remark as chief guest while addressing a rally organised by Dhaka south unit AL in protest against the anarchy in the city.


Quader, also road, transport and bridges minister, said there was nothing to be panicked about on Saturday.


“We are in power, why should we want any unrest and disorder,” he asked.


“The BNP will eat up the whole country once they come to office, (but) they won’t be given the chance”, Quader said.


The AL general secretary also warned that the BNP will face dire consequence if they try to create chaos in the name of movement.


He warned against any attempt to carry sticks during Saturday’s rally.


Addressing diplomats in Dhaka, the minister asked the representatives of foreign countries not to take any side.


“We know how to protect democracy,” he said.


Quader said that some media outlets have stepped in to bring the BNP in power, and they will get a timely reply for this.


With Dhaka south unit AL President Abu Ahmed Mannafi in the chair, presidium members Dr Abdur Razzak, Shahjahan Khan, Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman, among others, addressed the rally.
