Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport
and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said distorting the history of the
country’s independence is BNP’s democracy as the party failed to take the
people to street or wage movement.
“BNP’s multi-party democracy’s another shape was ‘yes’ or ‘no’ vote.
Distorting the history of the country’s independence is the democracy of BNP.
Their multi-party democracy was to impose curfew,” he said in reply to
comments of BNP leaders over November 7, 1975.
Quader was addressing a press conference at his official residence on
parliament premises here.
Quader said: “Though I don’t want to talk about BNP, they force me to do
that. If they make fabricated allegations against the government and the
Awami League, I must reply as the general secretary of the party.”
The minister strongly criticized the BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul
Islam Alamgir’s comment that the country became independent for the second
time on November 7, 1975 through revolution and solidarity.
“It is natural for BNP to consider the day as the independence for second
time, as the dream of a general to grasp the state power was materialized
through the assassination of four national leaders and killings of many
patriot, freedom fighter army officers between November 3 and November 7”, he
He said the defeated forces of independence took their revenge by carrying
out the August 15, 1975 carnage and BNP considered the day as independence
for the first time.
