Tearing the copy of the approved budget in the name of rejecting, the BNP MPs insulted the parliament, said Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader, at a post-budget pass press conference at his official residence on Thursday.
Mentioning that BNP did not behave responsibly in the critical period of the nation, he said that they wanted the budget not to be passed in the parliament. “The BNP wanted to see a depressing situation in the country.”
Obaidul Quader strongly condemned what the BNP MPs did, including breaking the oath, saying “the Awami League has been able to instill hope in the people, which was much needed in this pandemic situation.”
Mentioning that the Awami League is behind all the achievements of the Bengalis, he said, “The Awami League under the leadership of Bangabandhu has not only brought political independence for Bangladesh, but it has also done everything necessary in the national, regional and international arena to make this independence meaningful.”
When the Awami League is in power, the economic and political emancipation of the people is achieved and Bangladesh progresses in all respects, he added.
The Bridges Minister also said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the daughter of Bangabandhu, has always been talking about the welfare of the people, especially the poor and helpless people. “She has dedicated her whole life to loving the people of this country like her father,” he said.
Recalling a statement made by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in Parliament recently, the Awami League General Secretary said, “I have not come here to survive. I have come to give my life for the people of Bangla, there is nothing to be afraid of.”
