Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader said Tuesday BNP is the key barrier to the way of giving democracy an institutional shape in the country, reports BSS.

The AL leader came up with the remarks while talking to journalists after paying homage to Shaheed Noor Hossain on behalf of the party at the Noor Hossain Square at Zero Point in the city.

"Today, democracy is freed. But, unless democracy gets an institutional shape, it is not possible to make it well-established in the true sense of the term. BNP is the key barrier to give an institutional shape to democracy," he said.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said a non-communal, progressive and liberal democratic Bangladesh must be established to materialise the dream and aspirations of the 3.0 million martyrs.

Pointing to BNP, the AL general secretary said the talks of democracy do not suit the party which was born by patronising the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

BNP holds the spirit and ideology against the Liberation War, he added.

"BNP's democracy was 'yes' or 'no' vote. And in the polls, there was no box for 'no' vote. On the day, some polling centres received 110 per cent votes," he said.

Quader urged BNP to return to the path of democracy and positive trend of politics shunning the evil acts of hatching conspiracies to thwart the democracy.

"Stop ill politics to grasp the state power through backdoors. Let us work in unison to build a non-communal, progressive, democratic and developed state for the next generation," he said.
