Quader asks AL grassroots leaders not to misuse power

Quader asks AL grassroots leaders not to misuse power

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today urged AL grass root leaders not to misuse power, instructing them to send the names of competent and acceptable aspirants for the upcoming union parishad elections to the party.

"Don't send the names of bad people in exchange of money. Send the names of candidates who are acceptable to the people," he said while virtually speaking at a memorial meeting on late lawmaker Hasibur Rahman Swapan.

The meeting was held on Shahjadpur Pilot Model Government High School ground at Shahjadpur in Sirajganj this morning.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said a politician should do politics for the welfare of people, not for changing his or her own fate. 

"After getting power, many become desperate and this is not acceptable at all. Do not misuse power," he said.

Instructing the AL grassroots leaders to welcome good people in politics, the AL general secretary said if politics is done with bad people, the party will be affected. 

Only the tested leaders and workers will always stay beside the party and that is why the honest and good people should be attracted to the party," he said.

Mentioning that the politics of revenge, which started after killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1975, is still going on in the country, Quader questioned: "Who were involved in the killing of 75? Who were behind it? "Everyone knows that history - which will never be forgotten," he continued. 

Ziaur Rahman was the mastermind behind the Bangabandhu killing, while his son Tarique Rahman was the mastermind of the August 21 grenade attack, he added.

He said Ziaur Rahman introduced the politics of vengeance in the country and the BNP is still continuing it.
