Ruling Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said the recent verdict in the 21 August grenade attack case has proved once again that BNP is a terrorist organisation.
“The BNP has lost its acceptability and it has no qualification to retain its registration with the election commission,” Quader said while inspecting the preparation of a rally venue on the Madaripur and Shariatpur side of the Padma bridge.
The prime minister is scheduled to inspect the progress of the Padma bridge and inaugurate four projects on Sunday.
The Canada court earlier proved that Bangladesh Nationalist Party is a terrorist organisation, BSS quoted Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, as saying.
The AL leader alleged BNP’s acting chairman Tarique Rahman was the main plotter of 21 August grenade attack and he should have been sentenced to death. Tarique Rahman was given a life sentence in the 21 August grenade attack case.
“BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia too cannot avoid responsibility of the attack and she should also be brought to justice,” said Quader.
About BNP’s joining in the next general election, the minister said, “The BNP knows the best whether they will join the polls or not. Is there any instance in the world, where the opposition was brought to take part in election? On elections, the BNP talks one thing in the morning, another in the afternoon, and another in the evening.”
“BNP’s moral base and image as a political party has hit the bottom,” Quader added.
The road transport and bridges minister said five spans have been installed on the Jajira side of the bridge, one was installed on Mawa side and work is going on to install five more spans there.
