BNP out to instigate evil forces: Quader

News Desk: Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader Saturday dubbed BNP a patron of militancy, saying that the party started hatching conspiracies afresh to provoke the evil-forces. "Communal and evil forces carried out the brutal killings in 1971. Followers of them (evil forces) are still alive on the soil of Bangla and are nurturing Pakistani ideology," he said while addressing a discussion at the Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB) in the city. AL organised the discussion titled 'Tomader Ja Bolar Chhilo, Bolchhe Ta Aj Bangladesh' on the occasion of the Martyred Intellectuals' Day with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair. AL Publicity and Publication Secretary and Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud and Deputy Publicity and Publication Secretary Aminul Islam Amin conducted the discussion. Urging the party leaders and activists to remain alert, Quader said, "They (evil forces) are hatching conspiracies. The patron of communalism (BNP) is patronising them." He added: "We should remember that if Bangabandhu's daughter Sheikh Hasina would have not come to power what would have happened? Was it possible to carry out the trials of war criminals, killers of intellectuals and perpetrators of jail killing?" Noting that Sheikh Hasina herself made the nation free from stigma and sins, AL general secretary said, "We should remember again and again that values and spirits of independence and the Liberation War are still alive as Sheikh Hasina is in power." At the outset of the discussion, one minute silence was observed as a mark of profound respect to the memories of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and other martyrs of the August 15 carnage, four national leaders, martyrs of the Liberation War and martyred intellectuals.
