Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said that BNP is openly threatening with violence.
“Awami League wants peace. However, if our peace rally is attacked, AL leaders and activists will not sit idle. AL is committed to protecting the lives and property of the people,” he said while addressing a press briefing to discuss the inauguration of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Tunnel in Chattogram.
“We will not go to BNP’s program to attack them. But if our rally is attacked, we will resist and retaliate,” said the AL leader.
“We want free and fair elections. We want peace during elections. We want peace in the pre-election period too. The government will not allow unrest,” he added.
“Why should we provoke? There’s no need for us to provoke anyone. We want to run the country peacefully,” Quader also said.
“We are not aware of foreign pressure. We will conduct our elections. As friendly countries, they can monitor whether the election is fair or not,” the AL general secretary said._UNB
