Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday said BNP leaders are maintaining double standards over democracy.

“BNP made a farce in the name of multi-party democracy. As BNP lost people’s confidence, the party is now unimportant to people,” he said.

Quader was addressing a ceremony of relief items distribution on behalf of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina marking the holy month of Ramadan at Awami League’s Bangabandhu Avenue central office.

Awami League sub committee on Relief and Social Welfare arranged the program of distribution of Iftar items for orphans, disabled and distressed people and cash money distribution for family of deceased Umama Begum Kanak and cancer patients.

The AL general secretary said the global market is going through fuel and food crisis. People of Bangladesh are still remaining well amid such situations, he added.

After 1975, no other government ran the country as well as the incumbent Awami League, he said.

Noting that small flaws could occur in running the government, he said AL took ahead the country by overcoming all types of odds. But BNP leaders can only criticize, he added.

About BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s comment that AL enforced one-party government system in country, Quader said the people did not yet forget how BNP made farce in the name of multiparty democracy.

BNP’s multiparty democracy was actually a multi-party farce, he said.

The minister said the talk of democracy does not suit Mirza Fakhrul as he did not join parliament even after being elected in polls.
