BNP party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said Obaidul Quader is an ‘unrestrained liar’.
“Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader is a desperate liar. He said BNP held its programme illegally? What else can we call him except an unrestrained liar?” he said while speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office.
He said their party sought permission for the sit-in programme from police and they have a received copy of the letter. “Even, the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner spoke with our secretary general about the permission.”
The BNP leader said they had a plan to hold the programme in front of their party’s central office on Thursday. “As police requested us to stage it in front of the Press Club, we shifted it there.”
“What will people and students think about politicians if a senior leader like Awami League general secretary lies without any hesitation?” he further added.
The BNP leader voiced concern that their party’s arrested leaders and activists are not getting bail from the lower court due to the government’s interference.
“Nearly 6,500 of our leaders and activists were arrested over the last one and a half months. The government has blocked bails for our arrested party men by establishing its control on the lower judiciary.”
Rizvi strongly condemned the assault on a women in the city by the ’ruling party’ men on March 7 as well.
He also strongly criticized Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda for his comment that the Commission will not take initiatives for an inclusive election.
