Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader urged on Saturday all concerned to evaluate the party's devoted workers who stayed with the AL at its crisis while forming new committees at all levels across the country, reports BSS.

"Don't keep away the dedicated workers, rather ease the path of doing politics for them as they will always stay with the party at its well and woe," he said.

The AL leader made the remarks while speaking at an extended meeting of Manikganj district unit of AL through videoconferencing from his official residence on parliament premises in the city.

He said, "We will have to bring dedicated workers from grassroots to make the party stronger."

The AL general secretary urged the party leaders and workers to remain alert about wrongdoers, including drug addicts, drug peddlers, evil communal forces, extortionists, land grabbers and rapists so that such people cannot get any room in any committees of the party.

He said there is no alternative to maintaining organisational unity for a strong and pro-people party.

Turning to incidents of November 7, 1975, the minister said General Ziaur Rahman was the direct beneficiary of the November 7 happenings.x

General Zia killed many freedom fighter army officers in the name of revolution and solidarity on that day, he said.

Quader said many incidents had taken place from November 3, 1975 to November 7 to spoil the great achievements of the Liberation War and wipe out its spirit.

Now it is the demand of time to investigate those incidents through proper probe to unmask the perpetrators before the new generation, he added.

The minister said the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina doesn't provide any support to offenders as none gets spared using party identity.

He said Awami League's root is very deep in this soil and the people of this country are the roots of the existence of the party. The people remain with Awami League and Sheikh Hasina, he added.

Replying to a question of journalists, Quader said BNP is in crisis of existence due to its failure in movement and elections.

BNP's politics is on life-support now, he added.

AL Presidium Member and Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque, AL Joint General Secretary and Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni, Organising Secretary Mirza Azam, Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque, lawmakers Naimur Rahman Durjoy and Momtaz Begum and Manikganj district AL general secretary Abdus Salam attended meeting virtually, among others.

Manikganj district AL President Advocate Golam Mohiuddin chaired the meeting.
