Awami League General Secretary and Minister for Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Quader has said that the ongoing violence in various parts of the country has exceeded all levels of tolerance.
He said the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is committed to protect the lives and property of the people. They need to be dealt with politically by preparing a list of instigators of terrorism, anarchy and communal evils.
The bridge minister said this at a regular press conference held at his official residence on Wednesday morning.
Warning those who have perpetrated or are still perpetrating violence across the country, the Awami League general secretary said there is a limit to the patience and tolerance of the people of the country. Exceeding the limit will have dire consequences.
Mentioning that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has restored the lost democracy by uniting the people of Bangladesh after killing the father of the nation and his family in 1975, Obaidul Quader said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is prosecuting war criminals. On.
The minister said the Awami League is still behaving responsibly against the destructive politics of the reactionary clique as it is in charge of running the government, showing tolerance.
He said the people of Bangladesh are a religious nation and do not support any bigotry. If you play with fire, he will burn your hands in the fire.
Obaidul Quader said, government and private establishments have been attacked and set on fire in different parts of the country. So those who are involved in this will be identified and legal action will be taken and no one will be exempted.
Commenting that BNP-Jamaat was intoxicated in the heinous game of seizing state power in 2013-14 through destructive fire and terror by creating anarchy, he said Awami League leaders and workers know how to retaliate when they are injured and also know how to retaliate when attacked.
The general secretary of the Awami League warned not to break the barrier of patience, the nation will no longer tolerate the liberation war, the spirit of the liberation war and the humiliation of Bangabandhu. Awami League workers will respond to those who have attacked Bangabandhu’s pictures and sculptures.
Calling on all pro-liberation patriotic people to unite under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he said fire, terrorism and evil forces must be resisted and defeated.
Responding to a complaint that the government has decided to introduce public transport by bowing to transport owners and workers, the Road Transport Minister said, “Some people are making negative comments about the government’s decision to introduce public transport in all city corporations of the country, including Dhaka, which is very sad.” The government has taken this decision to reduce the suffering in the public interest in the face of the demands of the people. There is no room for confusion. He also said that some people have been spreading propaganda and making misleading remarks about the launch of long-distance bus service in a couple of days, which is not true at all.
