The BNP is now hatching a conspiracy after realising that it cannot go to power through elections, claims senior Awami League leader Obaidul Quader.

Addressing an event of the party's youth front on Saturday, he warned BNP leaders that they were keeping tabs on everyone "from London to Dhaka".

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is in the UK for the last one month, where she had undergone an eye surgery.

Her son Tarique Rahman, the party's senior vice chairman, has been living in London since 2008 after he was released on parole. He has been convicted in a money-laundering case and faces trial for several other corruption charges.

Referring to the Supreme Court verdict scrapping MPs powers to impeach top court judges, Quader said the BNP had been ecstatic over it.

"But after a few days, they now realise that their dream of coming back to power will not come true, so now they are hatching a conspiracy," said Quader, general secretary of Awami League.

According to him, the BNP was plotting to topple the government from abroad. "We have knowledge on everything. Who is going where, meeting whom and discussing what."

He claimed that secret meetings took place in London, Dubai and Bangkok to topple the Sheikh Hasina administration. "In this age of information technology, nothing remains secret.”
