BNP spreading rumours against Awami League: Quader 

Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has alleged that BNP is spreading rumours against his party.

Urging AL men to remain alert against rumours, he said: “Remain alert and be careful. BNP is spreading rumours against the Awami League….they (BNP) are plotting to show the Awami League as a corrupt party by spreading rumours.”

He made the remark while addressing a brief rally organised before bringing out a colourful procession in the capital on Friday afternoon, marking the 75th founding anniversary of the ruling Bangladesh Awami League.

He addressed the rally from a temporary stage set up on the premises of the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) adjacent to Suhrawardy Udyan.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said BNP is threatening the government that it will wage a movement.

Vowing that the Awami League is not a party to bow down (to anyone), he said the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and the judiciary are independent, and if an individual commits offenses, he or she will be brought to justice.

Quader said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has the courage to bring offenders to justice.

AL presidium members Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya Bir Bikram, Dr Mustafa Jalal Mohiuddin and Jahangir Kabir Nanak, joint general secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif and AFM Bahauddin Nasim, organising secretaries Ahmad Hossain, BM Mozammel Haque, Mirza Azam, SM Kamal Hossain, Shafiul Alam Chowdhury Nadel and Sujit Roy Nandi, publicity and publication secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap, Dhaka North City AL president Sheikh Bazlur Rahman, Dhaka South City AL president Abu Ahmad Mannafi, Jubo League president Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash, Dhaka North City mayor Atiqul Islam and Ferdous Ahmed, MP, also spoke.

Later, Obaidul Quader formally inaugurated the procession. 

The procession started from the premises of the IEB and ended reaching the historic Bangabandhu Bhaban premises at Dhanmondi-32 after parading Shahbagh, Elephant Road and Mirpur Road.
