Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader said on Saturday that Awami League’s power does not grow out of the barrel of gun rather people are the source of its power. Awami League’s root is very deep in that soil.
He joined it through video conferencing from his official residence on parliament premises.
Obaidul Quader was addressing the inaugural ceremony of a representatives’ conference of Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh (IDEB) at the institute at Kakrail.
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.
