Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said it is being looked into whether BNP is making sabotage after being failed in waging movement.

“We are looking into whether BNP has any involvement with the explosions took place one after another,” he said while replying to journalists after the end of a joint meeting at AL’s Bangabandhu Avenue central office here.

AL held the joint meeting with presidents and general secretaries of Dhaka city units and associate bodies of the party.

Quader said when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was in abroad to attend an UN event, some unexpected incidents were taken place in the country.

The government is urgently investing the incidents whether those are sabotage or not, he said.

About BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam’s comment that the incidents of explosions one after another across the country are mysterious, the AL general secretary said he is agreed with the comments of Mirza Fakhrul that the incidents are mysterious and those will be scrutinized.

The minister expressed deep shock and sorrow at the deaths in explosions at Siddique Bazar in the city’s Gulistan area, Science Laboratory area in Dhaka and Sitakunda in Chattogram, fire at Balukhali Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar.

Turning to politics, he said AL is holding peace rallies but BNP’s movement means arson terrorism.

“In the past, we saw in 2013-14-15 period that BNP had carried out arson terrorism after being failed in movement. As BNP cannot do so again, we are staying in field in favor of peace. We are remaining alert in this regard and we are alerting the people about the matter too,” he said.
