Awami League (AL) joint general secretary Mahbub-ul Alam Hanif on Monday said if BNP tries to create anarchy in the name of programme on January 5, the people of the country would give the party a strong reply.
The AL leader made the remarks in an extended meeting of the party’s Dhaka city unit at the party’s office in Bangabandhu Avenue.
The meeting was convened as part of preparations to mark ‘the Victory Day for Democracy’ on January 5.
Hanif said “People gave you (Khaleda) a befitting reply for subversive acts carried out in 2015. Permission has been given to BNP to hold programme on January 5. If BNP carries out any subversive acts, its consequences wouldn’t be good.”
About holding rally in Suhrawardy Udyan, he said that Suhrawardy Udyan is linked with the spirit of liberation war. He also added that AL is a party of Liberattion war and it is within their rights to hold a rally there. He also requested the DMP to take actions against anti- liberation force to hold rally at Suhrawardy Udyan.
Both AL and BNP wanted to hold rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on January 5. But both the parties were denied permission by DMP to hold rallies there.
On January 5, 2014 election, he said that a constitutional vacuum would have come about if the election was not held and some ‘evil force’ may have gotten the opportunity to assume state power, according to UNB. - Idrak
