Addressing foreign diplomats, Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said, "Don't spoil the friendship. We were friends with you. We have a lot of pain from the past. Still we do want friendship. Because everyone has to move on.
He said these things at the preparation meeting of the reception sub-committee organized on the occasion of the party's national convention at the party president's political office in Dhanmondi in the capital on Friday.
Addressing the foreign diplomats, Obaidul Quader said, many say that they should come to the election. But till today I have not found one. The result is not accepted. Election fraud is not only said in Bangladesh, this word is now being said in America as well.
General secretary of Awami League said that people died in US elections too. He said there was a scene where the bus driver died, Congress was attacked, how Nancy Pelosi hid. But foreigners talk so big. He urged foreigners not to destroy friendship.
Obaidul Quader also said that at least two incidents are happening in America in a week. 5 to 10 people are killed in each. 19 children died in the shooting. The police were deployed there, they did not provide security in time. He said the incident would not have happened if security had been given.
The Awami League leader once again said to the foreign ambassadors, "But talk about our court, what is happening to you there?" Everyone sees themselves first. He said, "Sheikh Hasina will not listen to anyone's words, anyone's orders, anyone's interference."
Obaidul Quader addressed the members in the preparatory meeting of the reception sub-committee and said that if the same person registers in different committees, it will not be accepted. There is no shortage of Awami League people. He commented that working people are needed, Awami League wants working people. Quader said that only 19 foreign diplomats will be invited to this conference. Apart from this, representatives of organizations like World Bank and United Nations will be invited.
