Quader said ‘pocket committee’ cannot be formed by any means to strengthen position of any individual.

If workers face troubles in party, AL will face troubles, he said, adding that identified terrorists, corrupt and communal people and drug peddlers will have no room in any committee.

The minister said BNP had initiated the policy of looting in the country by introducing ‘Hawa Bhaban’ during their government term.

“During the BNP government, there was no trial of corruption. No leader or worker was brought to justice for wrongdoings” he said.

The AL general secretary said Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina showed zero tolerance against wrongdoing and corruption.

“Many of our party have been sentenced and imprisoned while Anti-Corruption Commission is investigating against some others. This could not be imagined during BNP government,” he said.

About BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s remarks that the government is trying to make Ziaur Rahman as a villain, Quader said actually Ziaur Rahman is a villain of history because of his activities.
Ziaur Rahman was the beneficiary of Bangabandhu’s assassination through deep-rooted conspiracy, he said, adding that the BNP founder had introduced ‘multi-party mockery’ in the name of multi-party democracy.

Quader urged the people to remain alert and maintain health guidelines properly as the coronavirus infection rate is on the rising trend again.

AL Presidium Member Abdul Mannan Khan, Organizing Secretary Mirza Azam, Dhaka district AL General Secretary Md Mahbubur Rahman and Swechchhasebak League President Nirmal Ranjan Guha addressed the meeting, among others.

Dhaka district AL President Benzir Ahmed chaired it.
