Ruling Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday asked party leaders and activists to remain alert about students  movement against quota restoration and university teachers  against Prottay Pension Scheme.

"With  support from  BNP, the movement has taken a new turn. There might be some conspiracies. The party leaders and activists must remain alert, so that the movements  don become destructive to create anarchy," he said while addressing a joint meeting of ALs Dhaka North and South units and its subordinate bodies at AL central office at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital.

He, however, thanked the anti quota protesters for not giving any programme for Tuesday, saying the quota agitators have appointed lawyers in the case over quota system in government service. "I would like to extend my thanks to the protesters for not giving any programmes today," he added.

Quader said the university teachers movement over pension scheme and students agitation over quota system in government service are being strictly monitored. "We are monitoring the teachers movement and agitation over quota system. Those will be solved on time," he said.

He said, "We heard that the quota protesters have appointed lawyers and they will attend the court on time. It is their logical decision. I want to extend my thanks to the students."

Quader said the government had abolished all quotas in public service in 2018. But the High Court restored the system responding to an appeal of the children of seven valiant Freedom Fighters.

Quader regretted that some political issues have been added to the movement against the quota system. BNP extended its support to the movement and they are actively taking part in the agitation, he added.

Replying to a query regarding university teachers movement, Quader said, "Did we say l that we will sit with them? We are monitoring their movement. We hope that it will be solved on time."
