BNP is in frustration for political failures: Quader


Dhaka, Nov 01: Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said BNP is suffering from frustration for its political failures and for this, the party cannot see any positive achievements or economic development of the government and the country.

He was addressing a virtual meeting on enhancing the standard of service of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) through videoconferencing from his official residence on parliament premises.

Officials of BRTA headquarters, Dhaka metropolitan, adjoining districts, Chattogram, Cumilla and Sylhet joined the virtual meeting.

Quader, also Awami League general secretary, said the country’s foreign exchange reserve crossed $41 billon and remittance inflow has also increased but BNP could not see these positive aspects.

He said 18 flyovers and 413 kilometers four-lane highways have been constructed in the country so far. If BNP doesn’t believe that, they can visit the spots physically, he added.

About BNP’s allegation that the government is making falsehood over the country’s economic growth, the minister said BNP suffers from jealousy whenever the party hears any positive news of the country or its development and progress. So, BNP’s mistrust and falsehood are intrinsic, he added.
