He said if BNP tries to launch street agitation against the government, it will be dealt with politically

Awami League General Secretary, Obaidul Quader has said, the opposition in the Jatiya Sangsad would have been stronger, if BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir had joined the parliament.

Quader- also Road, Transport and Bridges minister- made the remarks while briefing newsmen after a meeting of different projects’ officials of the Bridges Division at Setu Bhaban in Dhaka’s Banani on Monday. 

“Joining of Mirza Fakhrul to parliament was imperative to serve the purpose of BNP as the opposition party,” he said. 

The senior ruling party leader said, BNP has shown its political maturity by joining the parliament, and Mirza Fakhrul could have given the strong message of his party, as a heavyweight leader, on behalf of opposition in the House, reports BSS.

Quader also said: “If BNP tries to launch street agitation against the government, the Awami League will face it politically.”

“The law enforcement agencies will take necessary measures if BNP, in the name of movement, goes for confrontation, arson attacks, ransacking, and anarchy in anyway,” he added.

Terming recent activities of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) very unfortunate, Quader said Prime Minister and party President Sheikh Hasina assigned four persons to oversee the issue.

Replying to a query of journalists about the reshuffle in the cabinet, the minister said: “The Prime Minister is our team leader . . . and the captain of the ship. She has done it to ensure quality, and speed of work.”
