Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the ruling party will hold programmes every day ahead of national elections.
He said the upcoming union-level programmes were not announced to counter rallies of the BNP.
"It is our duty to protect people's lives. And so we will have party programmes before the elections and we will remain vigilant till the polls considering the safety of the people and their properties," he continued.
Quader said that the AL leaders and activists are carrying out their programmes without any conflict.
"In 2013-14, people saw them (BNP) to conduct arson terrorism by burning railway stations and land offices in the name of programme," he said.
The road transport and bridges minister made the remarks while talking to reporters after inspecting the road safety awareness programme organised by the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) at Matsa Bhaban intersection in Dhaka on Tuesday, reports BSS.
During the programme, the minister highlighted the ‘revolutionary change’ in the country's communication system brought by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina-led government.
The minister also underscored the need for raising awareness among the people in this regard.
He informed the journalists that the work to bring three-wheelers, also known as easy bikes, under a policy is at the final stage.
He, as well, asked those who pasted posters on the pillars of the Metrorail, to remove those posters on their own responsibility. Otherwise, he warned of taking action against them.
Obaidul Quader sought the cooperation of all for ensuring road safety.
