People are Awami League’s source of power: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said people are the source of power of AL as the party is deep-rooted in the soil of Bangladesh. 
“Awami League’s source of power is not the gun barrel like that of BNP. People are the source of power of Awami League,” he said, addressing the council of 38 number ward of the party’s Dhaka City South unit at Mahanagar Natyamanch here.
Quader said BNP leaders got frustrated and bewildered as they stay out of the state power for long.
“BNP has no public support. People don’t respond to BNP’s call. BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir makes reckless comments everyday by holding press briefing. What should I say him? He doesn’t know Awami League. Awami League exists at nobody’s mercy as people are the source of its power,” he said.

 AL will exist as long as the ideology of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will exist, he added.

AL Joint General Secretaries -Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni and AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Organizing Secretary Mirza Azam, Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua, Dhaka City South AL President and Valiant Freedom Fighter Abu Ahmed Mannafi, General Secretary Md Humayun Kabir and Dhaka South City Corporation Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh addressed the function, among others.
Dhaka City South’s 38 number ward AL President Khandker Mainur Rahman Jewel chaired it.
Bahauddin Nasim said August 15, 1975 carnage was perpetrated to take the country backward.
After the assassination of Bangabandhu, the evil forces wanted to take back the country to Pakistani ideology and made evil attempts to establish communal politics, he said.
He said Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina reinstated democracy in the country after assuming power.
Nasim said when the country is marching forward under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, an evil political force started hatching conspiracy against the country.
He said the evil forces are thinking that they will be successful by making falsehood, spreading rumors and hatching conspiracy but they will never be successful as they didn’t learn doing politics for establishing people’s rights.
