Quader asks leaders not to use BCL for personal interests

CHITTAGONG- Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday directed the Awami League (AL) leaders not to use the activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) as tools for fulfilling their personal interests.

"Don't use BCL as sentinel for personal gains as this will harm both you and BCL. Don't build houses within a house", Quader warned.

Quader, also the Awami League (AL) General Secretary, said this while addressing the representatives' meeting of Chittagong north district AL at city community centre this afternoon.

Speaking on the occasion, Quader urged the party activists to get united forgetting all intra-party feuds and grouping as the national election is going to be held in next two years.

He also urged the party men not to smear the achievements of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina through their bad manners with people.

Issuing a strong warning for the party's grass-root level leaders and activists, Quader said all must abide by the party rules as no deviation of the spirits and ideals of the party will be allowed.

"Those involved in anti-discipline activities and misdeeds, you please correct yourselves. No one will be spared if you don't. It's the directive of our leader (Sheikh Hasina)," he said.

Sharply criticizing BNP's activities, Quader accused BNP of the chief patron of all terrible and anti-state incidents in the country, including Gulshan, Ashkuna, Sitakunda, Mirsarai, Sylhet and Sholakia militant incidents.

He said BNP is behaving like a reckless driver and the way they have taken preparations is tantamount to commit political accidents.

Quader said BNP has to face more challenges in future if it does not take lessons from past.

Terming BNP as an issue-based party, Quader said now they are capitalizing on anti-Indian issue and earlier they had created a lot of issues, but the people did not pay heed to them.

He said the BNP is now hatching conspiracies for creating newer issues on the upcoming general election and added that the party would again fail.

Terming Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as a wonder of the world and role model of development and achievement, Quader said, the development and achievements must not be faded away for the bad behaviours of a handful of persons.

He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, also the President of ruling Awami League, is well informed about everyone involved in the party.

Speaking at the function Housing and Public Works Minister Engineer Moshrraf Hossain said country's people are the source of power of AL while the anti-liberation forces are main power of BNP.

AL Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said Ziaur Rahman had proved that he was a spy of Pakistan as he had rehabilitated the killers of Bangabandhu and Begum Zia patronised Pakistani collaborators including Nizami and Mujahid politically.

Presided over by Vice President of Chittagong North district AL ABM Fazle Karim Chowdhury, MP, the session was addressed, among others, by AL Publicity Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud, MP, Mustafizur Rahman Mita, MP, Didurul Alam, MP, a number of Municipality chairmen, Upazila Chairmen, union Parisad Chairmen and representatives of different wards, unions and municipalities of Chittagong north district.

AL central Organizing Secretaries - Enamul Hoque Shamim and Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel and AL deputy office secretary Barrister Biplob Barua, among others, attended the function.
