BNP will cripple country, if comes to power: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said BNP will make the country inoperative if the party comes to power. 

"BNP has paralyzed the city roads in the name of holding a rally and they will cripple the country, if come to power," he said, replying to a question from journalists after the 25th meeting of the National Road Safety Council at a city hotel.

The meeting approved a plan titled 'National Road Safety Strategic Action Plan' aimed at cutting down the road accident to 50 percent. 

State Minister for Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives Mashiur Rahman Ranga was present on the occasion.

"We will hold a citizens' rally on November 18 hailing the UNESCO recognition of the historic 7th March speech of the Father of the Nation as a world documentary heritage," Quader, also Awami League general secretary, said, adding that such kind of rallies make sufferings, but it is the responsibility of the political parties to keep it within the tolerable limit. 

Terming today's sufferings, created by the BNP rally exceeding the tolerable limit, the minister said today's sufferings surpassed all woes on such occasions in the past.

Referring to the same situation on the day of according reception to Khaleda Zia, Quader said, "We accorded reception to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina where the presence of our women leaders was more than their (BNP) total presence. But our leaders and activists were standing on the footpaths in a disciplined manner". 

Referring to BNP's allegation against the government about barring the people from entering Dhaka to attend the rally, the AL general secretary said such allegations have to be scrutinized. 

It has to be scrutinized whether the government bars the BNP to hold the rally or they bar themselves as they are opponent of themselves, the minister added.

The minister blamed the indiscipline of BNP leaders and activists for the public sufferings. 

Speaking about Khaleda Zia's 'important message' to be given from the rally, the minister asked whether the BNP wants a supportive government or a caretaker government for the next polls.

Quader asked Khaleda to make their demand clear in this rally.

About BNP's demand for caretaker government, he said there is no scope to meet their demand as per the constitution. 

He reiterated that the next general polls will be held under the present government.BSS.
