Politics of vengeance is not good for democracy: Quader


Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said on Saturday Awami League never do politics of vengeance as it is not good for democracy.

“Awami League is the most tolerant political party of the country. It witnessed the brutality of August 15 massacre, November 3 jail killings and August 21 grenade attacks but did not do politics of vengeance,” he said while inaugurating BRTC double-decker bus service on Dhaka-Narayanganj route.

The minister joined the function through videoconferencing from his official residence on parliament premises.
Quader said democracy is a developing process as it flourishes through participation of all political parties and nurturing of it.

But the irony is that though BNP talks about democracy, it stays far away from playing the role needed to strengthen democracy, he added.

He said BNP takes part in elections to make the polls questionable. In one hand, BNP talks about democracy, on other hand, it makes evil attempts to make elections questionable, he added.
