BNP is burning with jealousy because the people elected Sheikh Hasina: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said that the people of the country elected Sheikh Hasina as the Prime Minister and BNP is burning with jealousy. They are jealous now.

He said this at the Awami League president's office at Dhanmondi in the capital on Sunday (January 21).

Obaidul Quader said that the government is not waiting for anyone's recognition. There is no reason to think that the elected government is so bankrupt as to sit idly by for some recognition.

The bridge minister said that Awami League as a country-loving government is taking measures to control commodity prices. And if BNP resorts to violence in the name of agitation, the law enforcement agencies will fulfill their duty against it and we will also deal with it politically.

Awami League general secretary said, no one has seen the outline of the so-called movement of BNP. Their movement is not clear. BNP has now become a laughing stock both at home and abroad after failing with the call of so-called movement. I think that their alleged movement is the cause of destroying the country's democratic culture.

Obaidul Quader said, BNP has the right to give political program peacefully. But in the name of movement, if they carry out terrorist activities on October 28 and thereafter, destroy state property, burn people, disturb public security, then the law and order forces will take appropriate action.

Central and Metropolitan Awami League leaders including Awami League Organizing Secretary BM Mozammel Haque and Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua were present in the press briefing.
