Awami League general secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said that the government will collect coronavirus vaccines from any source to save the lives of people.
He made the remarks on Wednesday after paying homage to Shaheed Sheikh Jamal, son of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, by placing wreaths at his Banani graveyard marking his 68th birth anniversary. Quader paid homage on behalf of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina first and then for the party.
There's no need for any special relationship with anyone to manage corona vaccines, he said, adding that the government will collect that from any source to save the lives of people.
Quader said the biggest challenge now is to avoid the politics of blame game over dealing with coronavirus, the common enemy of all, irrespective of party affiliation.
Quader mentioned the politics of courage and talent of Sheikh Jamal as the unique example of the Bangabandhu family.
