Responding to a question from reporters about the role of Shamim Osman in the upcoming Narayanganj city elections, Awami League presidium member Abdur Rahman said that he (Shamim Osman) has become a great leader by holding the ideology, policy, discipline, loyalty to the leadership of a party. If he does not abide by the decisions and if he takes the stand above the party candidate. We have received some messages, we are collecting their data. If we sort them out and find evidence that he has really taken a stand against our candidate, then we have nothing to do but take organizational measures. In politics, no one is above discipline or indespensible.

He made the remarks at an exchange of views with local journalists at a Chinese restaurant at the Narayanganj Press Club building on Saturday (January 8) at noon.

He said, "I heard that four chairmen of Jatiya Party worked for Taimur Alam yesterday." That is why we are talking to the Jatiya Party centrally. If Jatiya Party does not clear their position in Narayanganj. If they do not consider the context of national politics, then with them we will have some questions about the alliance position. And I think they will clarify their position with a statement today or tomorrow.

General Secretary of Awami League and Minister of Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Quader said, 'Complaining is their (BNP) politics. We don't do excessive politics. Politics will be dealt with.

He said these things in a view exchange meeting with journalists at Dagonbhuiyan in Feni on the way to his home in Noakhali on Monday (February 26) afternoon.

Obaidul Quader said, BNP will have to pay for the failure of the movement and not coming to the elections for a long time. It is surprising to me that Mirza Fakhrul came out of jail and went to complain with sticks on the day the US delegation arrived. But he got bail due to illness.

He said that the general election was held this time through many difficulties. There were various domestic and foreign conspiracies to foil the election. Bangabandhu's daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina did not fear anyone. She faced the plot with courage and determination. She has taken herself to unique heights as the longest-serving female Prime Minister in the world.

Obaidul Quader said that people could not even imagine the unprecedented development in this region like the whole country. People have welcomed this development. Feni's name will come to the fore in the development that has taken place in Bangladesh during this government, especially the development that has taken place in the road sector. Six lane flyover at Feni is being constructed. There is no 6-lane flyover outside Dhaka. I speak the truth. Yesterday was Shab-e-barat. I have not seen a good person like Sheikh Hasina since ‘75. There are so many good people in politics. That is why this government has remained in power for so long. She treats people well, and people love him.

Highlighting the party's decision in the upcoming upazila elections, the general secretary of Awami League said, this time we are not nominating anyone from the party in the upazila elections. Boat symbols will not be given either. Everything will be open. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wants to experience that everything is open.

Obaidul Quader said, I have been made general secretary of Awami League three times. Which no one else could do after independence. It is also rare for a man to stay as a minister for 18 years. I do not know if this precedent can be found anywhere else. Bangabandhu's daughter trusts me and is satisfied with my work, I have achieved that rare fortune.

The minister said that the Dhaka-Chattagram highway will be upgraded to six lanes. There will be two service lanes on both sides of it. The government is considering the development of an elevated expressway in the near future.

District Awami League general secretary Nizam Uddin Hazari MP of Feni-2 Constituency, Deputy Commissioner Moshammat Shahina Akhtar, Chairman of Daganbhoona Upazila Parishad Didarul Kabir Ratan and leaders of district and upazila Awami League and its affiliates were present.
