Communications Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday urged the main opposition BNP to maintain democratic norms in their remarks shunning the language of arms and anarchism.
“Try to learn to speak in the language of democracy, not in the language of arms because unguarded remarks serve the purpose of a particular party… it only inflame rumours,” he said adding that some politicians have lost patience like reckless drivers.
The minister, however, did not elaborate which party he actually meant.
Obaidul Quader made the remarks while talking to local journalists during his visit to Mawa Ghat, the gateway to the country’s southeastern region.
Referring to a call of BNP’s Dhaka City unit convener Sadeque Hossain Khoka on Tuesday to its leaders and activists to get ready with machete-axe to resist attacks on BNP’s scheduled October 25 mass rally in city, the minister said, “Issuing threats by leaders like Khoka is unbecoming.” -UNB
