Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today called upon the party leaders and workers to take preparations for the next parliamentary elections under the leadership of party president Sheikh Hasina from now.

"We will have to make the party well-organized and smarter, and take preparation for the next national polls from now under Sheikh Hasina's leadership," he told the triennial council of Meherpur district unit of AL joining virtually from his official residence in the capital.

About BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir's comment that list of AL leaders who laundered money should be published, the AL leader said if it needs to disclose the list of money launders, at first fugitive convict BNP's acting chairman Tarique Rahman's name will come on top of the list.

Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, urged BNP secretary general to give proofs and evidences before raising any allegations.

About fugitive businessman PK Halder who was detained in India on charge of misappropriation of money, he said Halder is not anyone of the ruling party rather he is identified as money launder.
