Branding the recently formed ‘National Unity’ a ‘hotchpotch’ one, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said he does not think this unity will survive.
“The unity forged by Dr Kamal is not a national unity. This is one type of ‘hotchpotch’. Those who sleep after arranging a rally in the name of unity cannot keep up a unity,” said Quader while talking to reporters at a hotel in the district town in the morning.
He further said, “At the beginning it was ‘National Unity’ but now it has turned into ‘Nationalist Communal Unity and it will be a nightmare for BNP to expect something from the unity’.”
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, claimed that the ‘nationalist unity’ has got tense after seeing the street rallies from Dhaka to Cox’s Bazar as part of AL’s electioneering.”
They do not have the capacity to assemble people in their national rally as much as Awami League did in one single rally, he said.
