Prothom Alo English Desk | Update:

Obaidul QuaderAwami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said the council of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) was postponed due to crisis in BNP leadership, reports UNB.

He came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at a discussion and doa mahfil progamme organised by Dhaka South Jubo League, marking the birthday of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

When asked about the allegation of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that the JCD council was postponed due to the government's interference, he said," The council has been suspended due to case filed by some JCD leaders. The government or Awami League is not responsible for it."

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday termed 'unprecedented' the court injunction on holding the council of their party's student body JCD.

"The current government has introduced a new political culture of regulating politics through court. It's a very dangerous culture, I think," he said.

He said it is regrettable that the government has been 'using' the court for the last 10 years to make its political gains. "They annulled the caretaker government system by using the court putting the nation and country into an uncertainty."

Talking about graft, Quader said the government has taken a strong stance against the corrupt in the party.

During Awami League government, he said, its ministers have been appearing before the Anti-Corruption Commission, many leaders and activists are serving jail term due to the strong stance of prime minister Sheikh Hasina against corruption.

Jubo League chairman Omar Faruk Chowdhury declared a month-long programme marking the birth anniversary of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

Dhaka South Jubo League celebrated Day of People's Empowerment on 9 September while North Jubo League on 11 September, marking the birth anniversary of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

The day will be celebrated on 16 and 17 September in Dhaka and Gazipur districts. Besides, the day will be celebrated across the country on 28 September.

Awami League joint general secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Economic Samity president professor Abul Barkat, foreign minister AK Abdul Momen, Jubo League former general secretary Mirza Azam, Jubo League general secretary Harun-ur-Rashid and publicity secretary Iqbal Mahmud Bablu were present at the event held with Dhaka South Jubo League president Ismail Chowdhury Samrat in the chair.
