BNP’s demands unconstitutional, says Quader
Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said that the seven-point charter of demands of Bangladesh Nationalist Party is unjustified, unrealistic and unconstitutional.
‘So, it is impossible for the government to fulfill the demands as after a month the schedule of the next general election will be announced,’ said Quader, also the road transports minster, while inaugurating a mass-contact programme of the party at Gulshan Kitchen Market in Dhaka.
Placing such unjustified demands, the BNP leaders are trying to keep their party leaders and activist active but they also understand that the demands will not be fulfilled, Quader said.
Joint general secretary of the party Dipu Moni, organising secretary Mohibul Hassan Chowdhoury Nawfel, central leaders Shammi Ahmed, general secretary of south city corporation Sadeque Khan and others attended the programme.
Awami League started weeklong mass contact programme across the country on Monday and in Dhaka City four teams are distributing party leaflets among the city dwellers.
