Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said the council of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal was postponed due to crisis in leadership in BNP.

He came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at a discussion and doa mahfil progamme organised by Dhaka South Juba League, making the birthday of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

When asked about the allegation of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that the JCD council was postponed due to government interference, he said, ‘The council has been suspended due to case filed by some JCD leaders. The government or Awami League is not responsible for it.’

BNP secretary general MirzaFakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday termed unprecedented the court injunction on holding the council of their party’s student body JCD.

 ‘The current government has introduced a new political culture of regulating politics through court. It’s a very dangerous culture, I think,’ he said.

He said it was regrettable that the government had been using the court for the last 10 years to make its political gains. ‘They annulled the caretaker government system by using the court putting the nation and country into an uncertainty.’

Talking about graft, Quader said the government had taken a strong stance against the corrupt in the party.

During Awami League government, he said, its ministers had been appearing before the Anti-Corruption Commission, many leaders and activists were serving jail term due to the strong stance of prime minister Sheikh Hasina against corruption.

Juba League chairman Omar Faruk Chowdhury declared a month-long programme marking the birth anniversary of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

Dhaka South Juba League celebrated Day of People’s Empowerment on September 9 while North Juba League on September 11, marking the birth anniversary of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

The day will be celebrated on September 16 and 17 in Dhaka and Gazipur districts. Besides, the day will be celebrated across the country on September 28.

Awami League joint general secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Economic Samity president Professor Abul Barkat, foreign minister AK Abdul Momen, Juba League former general secretary Mirza Azam, Juba League general secretary Harun-ur-Rashid and publicity secretary Iqbal Mahmud Bablu were present at the event held with Dhaka South Juba League president Ismail Chowdhury Samrat in the chair.
