Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader has asked all concerned not to provoke any unrest centering the upcoming visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bangladesh.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, made the call at a regular press conference on contemporary issues at his official residence in Dhaka on Tuesday.
He said, “India was the main ally of Bangladesh during 1971 Liberation War, so Bangladesh invited the head of government of India, not any particular individual.”
Quader said, “Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit has no link with the West Bengal elections or any other issue. He is an invited guest.”
About BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s comment that the party started getting organized to defeat the government, the AL general secretary said, “It is better to be politically organized, but if violent elements are added instead of peaceful movement in the country to create instability, then the Awami League under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina will face their every evil acts along with the people.”
“Now Awami League is very much united, strong and well-organized,” he said.
