Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said the BNP leadership should step down for their failure to wage any movement in the last 12 years before demanding government’s resignation.
He made the remarks while briefing reporters at his official residence in the morning.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said people have not seen such a failed opposition in Bangladesh’s history before.
He said there was a rise in family violence and repression of women and children alongside social unrest across the world during this coronavirus pandemic.
The ruling party leader said the Bangladesh government has taken a tough stance and amended the law incorporating the provision of death penalty to prevent rape and repression of women.
He urged all not to give the criminals political shelter alongside forging social resistance.
Quader also termed BNP’s demand for snap polls and fresh election illogical.
He said BNP is seeking government’s resignation as they are not finding any issue for movement.
