BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has invited Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader to join BNP as its adviser since the AL leader has long been giving BNP various suggestions.
“Awami League general secretary is regularly giving BNP various advice about what the party should do. He also says in advance about the decision of our party, and gives us various suggestions,” said the BNP leader while speaking at a press briefing at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office on Thursday.
Rizvi said the way Quader was talking about BNP, it seemed that he wanted to join BNP.
“So, there’s no point for him to remain with Awami League now. Rather, I urge him to join BNP, and our party’s door is open for him,” he added.
Mentioning that the ruling party leaders and activists are passing their days with an anxiety thinking of the consequences they will have to face for their ‘misdeeds’, Rizvi said, “So, Obaidul Quader and some other leaders are voluntarily trying to be the advisers of BNP.”
Rizvi said though their party is not there in parliament, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is ‘spiting venom against the Zia family’ in the House.
The BNP leader also said Sheikh Hasina became prime minister in the voting held at midnight.
“She’s now claiming that the December 30 election was free and fair and Awami League won the polls with people’s votes. She’s now making such remarks snatching people’s freedom of expression,” he said.
Rizvi said no one, except the prime minister and her party leaders and activists, said the election was free and fair.
“Even, the partners of the Grand Alliance are saying the voting was held the night before the election. The prime minister’s digital hunger for power snatched democracy,” he added.
