AL has no alternative but to win: Quader

'2001-like terrible situation will recur if AL gets defeated'

Awami League (AL) general secretary Obaidul Quader urged on Thursday his party leaders and activists to get united and protect the voting centres on December 30 as the party has no alternative but to win, report agencies.

"There's no alternative for us but to win. BNP can't turn out to be victorious in the polls as it couldn't win the movement," he said.

The AL leader made the comments while speaking at a joint meeting of Swechchhasebak League on Bangabandhu Avenue in the city.

Quader further said, "Oikya Front's conspiracy tool may hit again. If they guard the polling stations, Awami League must protect the voting centres."

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, urged his party leaders and activists not to be complacent 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," he added.

The ruling party leader also warned that a terrible situation will be created like that in 2001 if Awami League gets defeated in the election. "If we want to avoid such awful situation, we all must remain united."

Quader claimed they have already reached an understating with their alliance partners over the seat-sharing issue.

He urged his 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 misunderstanding 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.

Meanwhile, AL presidium member and central 14-party spokesperson Mohammad Nasim said on Thursday there is no need for any political party to guard the polling centres as the countrymen will do the job.

"The December 30 polls day will be the day of victory for the pro-liberation forces. The pro-liberation forces could never be defeated in the month of victory. You have no need to guard the polling centers. The people of the country will guard the centers," he said at a press conference at AL central office in city's Bangabandhu Avenue.
