On the occasion of Victory Month, the ruling party Awami League will hold a victory rally in the capital on December 18. The general secretary of the party Obaidul Quader said that the victory rally will be from Engineers Institution to Bangabandhu Museum.
He said this in a joint meeting of the central leaders with the president-general secretaries of Dhaka Metropolitan North-South Awami League and all affiliated organizations at the Awami League’s central office at 23 Bangabandhu Avenue on Monday (December 11) afternoon.
Obaidul Quader said, ‘January 7 is a challenging time. We must overcome this time. We have to reach the golden shore of victory in the month of victory under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.
Regarding the independent candidates, Quader said, ‘No one in the party will wrestle with the boat as an independent candidate. Conduct electoral competition in accordance with discipline. The party will not accept chaos. Awami League wants a fair, free election that is appreciated by all. Those who did not get party nomination will be evaluated in one way or another in due course There is no reason to be disappointed.’
Obaidul Quader said that the leaders and activists of Awami League’s subsidiary organization, along with the countrymen, have prevented the anti-election efforts of BNP and said, ‘If they attack, there will be a case. If there is a case, he will be arrested. Everyone saw how the police were beaten to death. Shouldn’t those who attacked have to be tried?’
In which country of the world the incumbent prime minister resigned and elected? He said that it is not approved in the Westminster system.
Obaidul Quader said, ‘Awami League did not get permission even by writing to the Election Commission to hold a rally on Human Rights Day. But the election opponents were allowed to rally in front of the press club. How did it happen? I left the question to those who gave permission?’
Obaidul Quader called on the party leaders and workers to follow the code of conduct and said that the election opponents must be resisted. Because this election is an election to protect the constitutional continuity of the country.
The beauty of democracy is that the elected government will hand over power to the elected government. Voter turnout in this election will be eye-catching. I did not think earlier that the wind blowing in favor of elections across the country would be so much.
Obaidul Quader said in response to a question about yesterday’s meeting, “The seat distribution of the parties will be resolved by the 17th.” Till then we have to give time. Journalists are not invited to discuss these issues.’
