Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said there is no chance of a change of power without elections. The source of the Awami League’s power is the people of this country and the owner of power is Almighty Allah.

“Not the government, the time has come for BNP to leave politics for negative politics and election diversion,” he said.

Obaidul Quader said these in a statement on Wednesday in response to a statement made by BNP Secretary General “The time has come to oust the Awami League government”. 

The Bridges Minister said the people no longer have any confidence in the mouthpieces of divisive political parties like BNP. Just as BNP has shown failure in governance, it has also set a precedent of “extreme irresponsibility” as an opposition party.

He said that BNP is holding meetings and rallies almost every day. But they are complaining that they are not being allowed to hold meetings, they are being deprived of their rights.

Obaidul Quader added that during the BNP regime, the upward trend in the prices of the commodities increased the people’s last gasp, recording the oppression on the minorities. BNP wants to plunge the country into that anarchy again.
