BNP remains in political isolation: Quader
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday said BNP cannot see any development activity of the government as the party remains in political isolation after being boycotted by the people.
He said this at a press conference on contemporary issues at his official residence on parliament premises.
About BNP secretary general’s allegation that the government has been careless since the outset of coronavirus pandemic, Quader said it is not criticism rather BNP is making falsehood and spreading hatred against the government.
The minister said when different countries are witnessing severe troubles in controlling the transmission of coronavirus (Covid-19), the efforts of the Bangladesh government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in checking its spread and providing treatment are being lauded worldwide.
“BNP wanted that people would die without treatment and food but that didn’t happen. And that is why BNP got irritated. Making falsehood and tarnishing the image of the government is now BNP’s only task,” he said.
Quader said they would be carrying on their fight against any kind of crisis and disaster including coronavirus pandemic, as long as Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s humanitarian leadership will exist.
