Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said that the poison tree of communalism has spread in the country under the leadership of the BNP. In the Bengali New Year, under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, an oath should be taken to uproot the poisonous tree of communalism. The Minister of Road Transport and Bridges said these things in the pre-procession discussion meeting organized by Dhaka Metropolitan South Awami League on Payal Baishakh. This meeting was held at Bahadur Shah Park in Old Dhaka. After the meeting, the procession came out. Obaidul Quader said that the first Baisakh day is a day to spread the message of secularism. Paila Boishakh is a part of Bengali identity. After many days, the first Baisakh is celebrated in a familiar environment. The General Secretary of Awami League said, “Our spirit is non-communalism, secularism.” Those who believe in the spirit of the liberation war in Bangladesh, our main enemy is communalism. The branches of the poison tree of communalism under the leadership of BNP must be taken, we will uproot the poison tree of communalism under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina in Bengali New Year. The Road Transport Minister said those who conflict with Payala Boishakh believe in communalism. Many people do not celebrate the first Baisakh. Because, their ideal communalism, their ideal biracialism, mistrust the spirit of Bangladesh’s liberation war. Their ideology is to oppose the independence of Bangladesh. The evil force of this criminal policy of communalism has to be defeated. The bridge minister said that the first Boishakh was a glory for the Bengali nation. Awami League was there before, still is, and will be in the future with everything in Bengali history and tradition. There is no need to look at who abstained from the celebration, and which party did not observe. As long as the Awami League remains in this country, the first Baisakh will be celebrated. Obaidul Quader said that Paila Baisakh had brought a new message. Paila Boishakh is part of the solution to the economic crisis. Eid after the first Baisakh. In these two consecutive festivals, there will be trade and shopping in cities and villages. A golden opportunity has arrived to boost the economy. New life will come to the economy.
