Govt preparing the ground for fair polls: Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said that Awami League government is preparing a free, fair and credible election. The preparation is in final stage.

The AL leader said this while addressing a program at Bangabandhu Avenue central office in the capital on Sunday (May 28).

He said, "BNP has repeatedly caused damage to Bangladesh, while Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is repairing those. Today, by creating instability in the country, they (BNP) want to impede the process of holding fair elections."

The AL general secretary said no sanction will stop the elections and the government has no headache about sanctions.

"Foreigners are our friends, not masters. The BNP is involved in ill politics. If the ruling Awami League remains united, BNP will be defeated," he added.

He said as the country's constitution does not allow the caretaker government system, the BNP will be affected by the US visa policy if it demands restoration of this system.

"Now it is a matter to see what the US's position will be about those who will impede the process of free and fair elections. The Awami League wants free and fair elections, but BNP is hatching plots to disrupt the elections," Quader said.

AL joint general secretaries AFM Bahauddin Nasim and Dr Dipu Moni, organising secretaries BM Mozammel Haque, SM Kamal Hossain, Mirza Azam and Sujit Roy Nandi, publicity and publication secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap, cultural affairs secretary Ashim Kumar Ukil, science and technology affairs secretary Abdus Sabur, deputy publicity secretary Syed Abdul Awal Shamim, Dhaka North City AL president Sheikh Bazlur Rahman and Dhaka South City AL president Abu Ahmed Mannafi were, among others, were present at the meeting.
