Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said BNP and Jamaat took the path of conspiracy in a bid to prove the government failure.

“BNP-Jamaat is out to frustrate the present government,” he said.

He called upon the leaders and activities of Awami League to remain ready to foil all the intrigues, reports BSS.

Quader, also the Awami League general secretary, made the statement at the triennial conference of Prabasi Awami Forum at the auditorium of the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) on Friday.

Speaking as the chief guest, he said BNP is trying to capitalize the issue of price hike of essentials to put the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina-led government in trouble.

“In collusion with different syndicates, they (BNP men) are creating artificial crisis of essentials in the market. We are examining the matter. In some cases, we were informed that BNP men were instigating to soar the price of essential commodities,” he said.

The Awami League general secretary said the foreign minister and the home minister cancelled their India tours due to the Victory Day and the Martyred Intellectuals Day. 

“They will visit India later,” he added.

Recalling the existing good relations of Bangladesh and India, Quader said: “We have excellent and constructive relations with India”.

He congratulated Tulip Siddiq, granddaughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and Bangladeshi-origin Rushanara Ali, Rupa Huq and Apsana Begum for wining in the UK elections.
