Awami League (AL) joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif on Saturday termed BNP acting chairman Tarique Zia as a terrorist and accused him of carrying out terrorist activities in Bangladesh from London.
“Tarique initiated politics of terrorism and took control over all terrorist activities in the country from foreign soil,” he told a joint extended meeting of Chittagong city, north and south district units of AL at Muslim Institute Hall this afternoon.
Hanif said it is illegal to block a busy road for demonstration by BNP men and the law enforcing agencies are even being thwarted to discharge their duties in the name of agitation to release BNP Chairperson Begum Zia from jail. Police are bound to stop the illegal activities, he added.
He said BNP is demonstrating by holding rallies and processions in the roads demanding release of its party chief Khaleda Zia and on the other hand they are blaming that police are bringing to a close their programme.
"AL never blocks roads for its programme. We organize our political programmes in open spaces and none is above the law," he said.
He asked the district and upazila level leaders and workers of AL to remain alert about the heinous activities of BNP and their allies in this regard.
Referring to the huge development witnessed in almost all sectors under the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's nine years term, Hanif called upon the leaders and activists to project the achievements before the countrymen.
He also asked the AL's grassroots level leaders and workers to make success of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's rally on March 21 in Chittagong.
Addressing as chief guest Housing and Public works Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain asked the party leaders and workers to take preparations for making a success of Sheikh Hasina's public meeting.
Conducted by Chittagong south district AL general Secretary Mofizur Rahman, the meeting was presided over by President of Chittagong North District unit of AL Nurul Alam Chowdhury.
Acting President Mahtab Uddin Chowdhury, President of Chittagong South District AL Muslem Uddin Ahmed, AL city unit General Secretary (GS) city Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin, AL Publicity Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud, MP, central organizing secretary Barrister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel, State Minister for Land Saifuzzaman Chowdhury Jabed, Deputy Publicity Secretary Aminul Islam, AL deputy office secretary Barrister Biplob Barua, Shamsul Hoq Chowdhury, MP, Didurul Alam, MP, Washika Aysha Khan MP, Mustafizur Rahman Chowdhury, MP and Nazrul Islam, MP, among others, addressed the meeting.-BSS
