Massive support for ‘boat’ makes Oikyafront leaders reckless: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said massive public support for 'boat', the election symbol of Awami League, made Jatiya Oikyafront and BNP leaders reckless.

Witnessing 90 percent support for 'Nouka' (boat), the leaders of Jtaiya Oikafront and BNP have become reckless . . . And they are spreading imaginary allegations against the Awami League, he told journalists at Dagonbhuiyan on way to his electoral constituency in Noakhali.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, bitterly criticized the role of Dr Kamal Hossain, saying the Oikyafront leader, who speaks about morality, humanity and democracy, has now turned into a proponent of ill politics.

Referring to Kamal's violent reaction to a journalist's question on JamaateIslami at Mirpur Martyred Intellectuals Mausoleum, the minister accused him of dishonouring the journalist community. He presented himself in his real self uttering a Pakistani word 'Khamosh' (shut up).

About AL's rebel candidates for the 11th parliamentary election scheduled for December 30, the AL general secretary said, Wait and see what measures are taken against them.
