Disregarding BNP’s threat to wage a tougher anti-government movement after October 24, Communications Minister Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said they will face the opposition’s political programmes politically.The minister came up with the remark while talking to reporters after inspecting a newly-constructed bridge in Delduar upazila in the district.
Quader, also an Awami League presidium member, said, “BNP is taking all-out preparations for the next election in the name of forming (polling centre-based all party) sangram (struggle) committee.”
Addressing a public rally in Sylhet on Saturday, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia said polling-centre-based all-party sangram committees will be formed across the country to resist the government move to hold a unilateral national election.
She also said, “I’ll tell you (people) to start forming the committees right now. The government’s tenure expires on October 24. If the government doesn’t restore the caretaker government system by the time, we’ll wage a movement from October 25.” – UNB
