MT Desk: Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said the government has nothing to do with the bail of BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia.
“Khaleda Zia is a graft case convict. It is the jurisdiction of the court whether it will give bail to her or not. The government has nothing to do here,” he told the triennial conference of the Kurigram district unit of AL at the district stadium here.
Quader said BNP does not abide by laws, courts and court verdicts, so they turned the court premises into a battlefield by carrying out anarchy to put pressure on the court.
He said the politics of BNP has got stuck in the quicksand of mistakes. For the last 11 years, the party leaders and workers have been announcing of waging movement, but it could do nothing, he added.
Quader said opportunists and wrongdoers will not get any room in the new committees of the Awami League.
“Awami League has a lot of devoted workers. It has no need to hire people from outside,” he added.
Earlier, AL Presidium Member Ramesh Chandra Sen inaugurated the triennial council of Kurigram district AL by releasing balloons and pigeons.
