Opposing govt BNP's only political strategy: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader said on Wednesday the only political strategy of BNP is to oppose the government on all issues, reports BSS.

"Opposition is its only political strategy. So, how will the BNP add colour to the developing rainbow of democracy?" he questioned while speaking at a virtual press briefing on contemporary affairs from his official residence in the city.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the BNP is far away from the role that the people expect from the party to strengthen democratic institutions in the country.

Asking what role BNP has played so far to advance democracy in the country, he said BNP did nothing but making criticisms of the government over everything, while BNP leaders do not praise any good work of the government.

The AL general secretary said the BNP's politics is based on conspiracy, not on democracy, and the party has proved it time and again.

About BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir's comments on judiciary, he said the judiciary is working completely independently.

In recent incidents, Quader said some AL leaders and activists have been sentenced and are getting punished as the government does not intervene in anything, which proves that the judiciary is working independently.

Noting that the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is also working independently, he said cases are being filed against the public representatives of the ruling party at different levels and they are being punished.

"It is clear that there is no government intervention in the national anti-graft agency" he added.
