Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina never breaches her commitment while she always keeps what she pledges.
“AL’s election manifesto was announced yesterday. Special emphasis has been given on youth employment in the manifesto. If the leader (Sheikh Hasina) is voted to power, at least one person from each family will get job,” he said while addressing a street rally at Kabirhat upazila here.
All houses will be illuminated by 2021 and none will live under the open sky, Quader said, adding that nobody would remain homeless in the country.
Replying a question about Election Commissioner Mahbub Talukder’s remarks over level playing field ahead of the general election, the AL general secretary said: “It is his personal opinion…it is a democratic process. The Election Commission is formed with five members. Opinion of the maximum members out of the five is considered as a decision”.
Referring to his rival candidate Moudud Ahmed’s allegations, Quader said the votes of people do not come by tears while people want development and works, adding that Moudud Ahmed did not do any development work during his tenure for past 22 years.
Blaming Moudud for spreading falsehood, he said: “Moudud alleged that he has been confined. Actually, he cannot go out for conducting election campaign as people don’t want him…so he is trying to create anarchy”.
Noakhali district unit AL organising secretary Samsuddin Selim, District Council member Alabox Titu, Kabirhat Upazila unit AL president Nurul Amin Rumi and Kabirhat municipality mayor Jahirul Haque Rayhan accompanied Obaidul during his election campaign carried out at Farayezi Bazar, Tekerbazar and Pashchim Darapanagar and Noor Sonarpur under Kabirhat upazila.-BSS
