Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday urged their party men to get united and protect the polling centres on December 30 as their party has no alternative to win.
“There’s no alternative for us to win. Oikyafront’s conspiracy tool may hit again. If they guard the polling stations, Awami League must protect the voting centres” Quader said while speaking at a joint meeting of Swechchhasebak League at Bangabandhu Avenue here on Thursday.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, also urged the leaders and activists of his party not to be confident about coming back to power in the next election.
“Work together for ensuring the victory of all the candidates of our party and alliance partners.”
The ruling party leader also warned that a terrible situation will be created like 2001 one if Awami League gets defeated in the election. “If we want to avoid such awful situation, we all must remain united.”
He said they are going to start giving the final nomination letters to their candidates today (Thursday) and the process will be completed by Friday.
Quader claimed that they have already reached an understating with their alliance partners over the seat sharing issue.
He urged their party and alliance leaders and workers to accept the final nominations of the alliance for the sake of their greater interests.
The ruling party leader also said there is no reason for having any misunderstand among their alliance partners. “We sat in talks repeatedly, and we could nominate the good candidates from the alliance.”
Quader also hoped that those who will get nominations from the Grand Alliance will come out successful in most of the seats.
