Ruling out the possibility of making any anti-national agreement with neighbouring India, Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said BNP has started making different talks (allegations) before Sheikh Hasina's official tour to India.
The Awami League leader came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion saying it’s BNP’s old habit to spread anti-Indian sentiment.
Jatiya Sramik League organised the discussion marking the historic 7th March Speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in front of Awami League Central Office at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital Sunday afternoon.
"You (BNP) have started making different talks (allegations) before Sheikh Hasina's official tour to India,” Quader said.
"We have positive relations with India. If we make any agreement it will be for the sake of the national interest and I can firmly say that our Prime Minister would not make any treaty harming national interest," he added.
AL joint general secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak, organising secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Labour Affairs Secretary Habibur Rahman Siraj, Sramik League general secretary Sirajul Islam, among others, addressed the function with the host organisation president Shukkur Mahmud.
Quader said BNP is saying that they will not take part in the next national election under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, but they have started taking up preparation for the polls secretly.
The AL general secretary said different organisations in the name of Bangabandhu, his family members and Awami League were founded for political interest, these should be closed."These organisations have no ideology," he added.
About the strike, the minister said those who wage strike making people as hostage they can never be friend of people.
"Movements can be waged in different ways for the sake of people's interest. Programme must be realistic," he said.
The AL general secretary said many conspiracies are hatched centering the labours and workers.
He urged the workers not to pay any heed to the conspiracy.
