Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said BNP takes part in any election only to make it questionable, not to win it.
“In other words, BNP is causing damage to itself in doing so,” he said while addressing the council of Manda upazila unit of Awami League in Naogaon district in the morning.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, joined the programme remotely from his official residence in the capital.
He said BNP has no courage to speak publicly when the spirit of the Liberation War is challenged although the party claims it has the freedom fighters most. “People have discarded BNP for such evil politics.”
Quader said the government always welcomes constructive criticisms and wants strong and responsible opposition to take democracy forward.
Mentioning that BNP is passing through its worst days, he advised its leaders to be respectful to the country’s people after realising the reality.
