Tarique is responsible for all violence and terrorism: Quamrul
5 February 2015, Nirapad News: Awami League joint general secretary and food affairs minister Advocate Quamrul Islam said BNP leader Tarique Rahman is responsible for all the subversive acts of strike-blockade programmes in the name of political movement.
“Barbaric attacks are being carried out at the dictation of BNP leader Tarique Rahman in the name of strike-blockade, political crisis can be solved through dialogue or talks with political parties; but talks can’t be held with any terrorist organisation,” he said. Quamrul Islam said this while speaking at an anti strike-blockade public rally organised by the national trade union federation, Jatiyo Sramik League (JSL) at Balaka point in city’s Motijheel area.
Criticizing BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia he said, “Such barbarism cannot be expected from a two- time elected Prime Minister but the government won’t let anybody introduce the culture of killing people for realizing any demand,” the minister said.
Awami League labour affairs secretary Habibur Rahman Siraj, JSL executive president Fazlul Huq Montu, vice-presidents Aminul Huq Faruk, Jahurul Islam Chowdhury, organizing secretary Tofael Ahmed and office secretary Aminul Islam also spoke at the meeting with JSL President Shukkur Mahmud in the chair.
“The main agenda of BNP- Jamaat is not to hold a fresh poll, Khaleda is trying to save her corrupt son while Jamaat wants to save their leaders, the war criminals of the Liberation War in 1971,” he added.
The Minister urged JSL leaders and activists to make the blockade programme at BNP Chairperson’s Gulshan office on Monday a success.
