No benefit to give condition for Khaleda’s release: Quader
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said, BNP leaders are giving condition of Khaleda Zia’s release for participating in election. To whom are you giving condition? No benefit to give condition to the government. The government did not bring Khaleda Zia in the jail, it did not award punishment to her even it cannot release her. Court’s decision is the last word to release her.
He said these while responding to the newsmen after a discussion and iftar mahfil organized at the Ladies Club on Monday. Dhaka metropolitan Awami League South unit organized the meeting.
Obaidul Quader said, government has nothing to do in this regard. Demanding release of Khaleda Zia to the government is a lame excuse. It is unnecessary and irrelevant. It is the jurisdiction of the court.
About Bikalpa Dhara president AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury’s speech regarding Khaleda Zia’s treatment in London, he said, let BNP make the demand. We will send her abroad if necessary according to the jail code.
About BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s meeting with party acting Chairman Tarique Rahman, he said, is it a sign of democracy to visit a convicted person? Can a convicted person be a party acting Chairman?
Criticizing Moudud Ahmed’s speech Quader said, he used to lie sitting in Paltan office. Have you done anything in the last 22 years so that people of your constituency will vote for you? Local people are angry with you. You have divided the party.
The meeting was presided over by metropolitan Awami League South unit president Abul Hasnat where Awami League presidium member Matia Chowdhury and other local leaders delivered speech.
