Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader has urged all to remain alert against the anti-development force, as "the conspirators of 15 August and 21 August are still continuing their evil efforts".
Quader, also road, transport and bridges minister, made the remarks at a virtual memorial meeting from his official residence on Sunday night arranged by the UK unit of AL in memory of the party leaders who recently passed away.
He paid glowing tributes to late AL leaders Mohammed Nasim, Sahara Khatun, Sheikh Md Abdullah, Badaruddin Ahmed Kamran and others and prayed for eternal peace of their souls.
They worked relentlessly for the party and the nation until their deaths as associates of prime minister and Awami League president Sheikh Hasina, Quader said.
He said the nation had lost the greatest Bangalee of all time, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, in the month of August in 1975.
The month of mourning, carries the meaning of grief of losing, ecstasy of perpetrators and smell of conspiracy to the Bangalee nation, he added.
Quader also spoke about the coronavirus pandemic. He said Bangladesh has been facing the pandemic with enormous courage despite various limitations.
He called upon leaders and workers of UK Awami League to remain united to become vibrant against the propaganda being carried out against the government of Sheikh Hasina and showcase the government’s achievements before the world.
UK unit of AL president Soltan Sharif and general secretary Sajidur Rahman Faruq addressed the memorial meeting, among others.
