Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader toady said democracy has once again won in the country with free and fair by-elections held today at six constituencies left by Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).

He made the remarks while speaking at a rally, organised by the Dhaka South City AL, at Jatrabari intersection here protesting the BNP-Jamaat’s terror acts and anarchy.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said who won and who lost in the by-polls was not the main issue. “It was important that whether the by-elections were held in free and fair manner or not,” he added.

The AL general secretary said BNP gave “disguised candidates” in all seats in the by-elections. With the passage of time, the BNP will realise how big mistake it made by resigning from the national parliament, he said.

Claiming that the government is not nervous or afraid of BNP’s road march, he questioned, “Why did they (BNP) stop their road march instead of showing red card to the government?”

The BNP’s movement is getting softer from hot, while the government is not afraid of it but the party itself is afraid, Quader said, adding: “We are not panicked or afraid of their road march. BNP’s programme is softening and their world is getting smaller.”

“BNP is a pathless passerby,” he said, “but we are yet to start our game. BNP’s movement for falling the government and its demand for caretaker government are fake ones.”

The AL general secretary said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir went to show red card to the government but returned empty handed.

“Movement for ousting the government, 54 parties, 27 and 10 points, caretaker government are all fake,” he said.
