Food Minister and Dhaka City Awami League (AL) joint general secretary Advocate Quamrul Islam on Friday called upon BNP to take recourse to positive politics discarding the politics of destruction and terrorism keeping in mind the next national polls.
Calling upon AL leaders-workers to stand beside the common people, Quamrul Islam said otherwise, the voters would not respond to your call.
The AL leader said this while speaking as the chief guest at a function organised by Keraniganj Upazila AL at the outskirts of Dhaka. The minister distributed blankets among poor cold-hit people of his constituency.
"It's our moral responsibility to stand beside the hapless cold-hit people at this hour. It's also our social obligation alongside religious dictates to stand beside poor in the society," Quamrul Islam added.
Keraniganj Upazila AL convener and upazila chairman Md Shaheen Ahmed presided over the function, also addressed, among others, by central leader of Awami Juba League Yusuf Ali Chowdhury Selim and Dhaka District unit president of AJL Shafiul Azam Khan Barqu, according to BSS. - Idrak
