People are source of power of AL: Quader
Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said his party is deeply rooted in the soil of this country as people are the source of power of AL.
“Awami League’s power does not grow out of barrel of gun rather people are the source of its power.
Awami League’s root is very deep in that soil,” he said.
Quader, also minister for road transport and bridges, was addressing the inaugural ceremony of a representatives’ conference of Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh (IDEB) at the institute at Kakrail here.
He joined it through a videoconferencing from his official residence on parliament premises.
About the remarks of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that the power of AL will be ruined like a house of cards, he said Awami League is not a house of cards that it would get destroyed in a tap.
He said AL remains in the hearts of people as it led every democratic movement, struggle, achievement and progress of the nation as well.
The AL general secretary said his party stayed beside the people in their well and woe throughout the last seven decades since its inception.
The country’s most glorious achievement, the great independence, was attained under the leadership of AL, he said adding that those, who think that AL’s position is as like as a house of cards, are living in a fool’s paradise.
Pointing to the engineers, the minister urged the engineers to play a significant role to implement the government’s mega plans in attaining the goal of building a prosperous Bangladesh by 2041.
