Dhaka, October 24: Outgoing Awami League (AL) general secretary Syed Ashraful Islam has declined to make any comment about giving up the party’s general secretary post.
When he came out of a cabinet meeting on early Monday afternoon at the secretariat, reporters asked him why he gave up the post of general secretary and what was his reaction about the new general secretary.
In reply, Ashraful Islam, who is also minister for public administration ministry, only said: “I’ll talk to you about it when time will come.”
On the other hand, newly-elected general secretary of Awami League Obaidul Quader also refrained from making any comment about the issue following the cabinet meeting. Quader left the secretariat for Awami League office at Dhanmondi to attend his scheduled press conference there.
