Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said the BNP’s politics of killings and conspiracy is the main impediment to flourishing democracy in the country.
He came up with the remark while speaking at a meeting through videoconferencing from his official residence on Monday.
Sainik League arranged the meeting at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said BNP is responsible for mutual animosity created in the country’s politics by killing Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members.
He said Ziaur Rahman was the mastermind behind the Bangabandhu killing, while BNP intrigued many times to kill AL President Sheikh Hasina.
The Awami League was not involved in the assassination of Ziaur Rahman and never got involved in conspiracy to kill BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia, Quader said.
The BNP wants to destabilise the country by hatching intrigues against the government, he said. So a united resistance must be created against them, he added.
