Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday said BNP has brought Jamaat to the fore to carry out arson terrorism.
He said this while speaking at a "peace rally" organised by Dhaka city north unit of AL at Nikunja playground in the capital.
Quader said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has been making absurd comments.
If BNP wants peaceful atmosphere, it should forget the issues of caretaker government system, Sheikh Hasina's resignation and dissolution of parliament, he said.
Noting that AL doesn't fear the new visa policy of the US, the minister said they are taking preparation for a free and fair national election.
BNP will have to pay price if it makes any mistake, he said.
Mentioning that BNP holds "picnic party" in the name of rally, Quader said BNP will again hold road march and now their allies are 52 parties.
Many of those parties have fled. The movement, which has no leader or people's engagement, cannot turn into a mass movement, he said.
Quader said Mirza Fakhrul predicted that AL would not get even 10 percent votes. Before 2008 elections, BNP said AL won't even get 30 seats in parliament and in reality, they got only 30 seats in the polls, he mentioned.
The minister urged BNP to contest the next general elections. "If you have courage, join election. Game will be played," he said.
