Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday warned that none will be spared who are involved in the recent Borhanuddin incident, saying BNP has plotted to catch fish in troubled water centering the incident triggered from a facebook status, reports BSS.

“Prime Minister (Sheikh Hasina) has not given any chance to make the incident as an issue. None will be spared involved in the incident,” he said while addressing a gathering of local dignitaries at the Eidgah Maidan of Charfesson upazila in the capital on Wednesday afternoon.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said BNP is now looking for different issues as they failed in different elections and waging movement.

The country’s history says people who fail in waging movement, cannot win in the election, he said, adding that BNP has failed searching for an issue centering the movements for safe road, quota reformation and BUET student Abrar killing incident.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has proved that Awami League does not spare its own people for their offences and misdeeds, Quader said, adding that an AL upazila president has been awarded death sentence in Nusrat murder case.
