DHAKA, Jan 17, 2019 : Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said it is good both for the 14-party alliance and the government if members of the alliance can play role as like as opposition in the House.
“Many parties of the Grand Alliance showed their keen interest to play active role like opposition in the parliament. If they do so and make constructive discussions it would be better for the government to correct its mistakes,” he told reporters after visiting Shuruardy Udyan.
Quader visited the Shuruardy Udyan to see himself the preparations of the grand rally of AL to be held on Saturday to celebrate its landslide victory in the 11th parliament polls.
Terming the 14-party is an ideological alliance, he said the grand alliance is a strategic polls alliance. “There is no misunderstanding and gap in relations among the 14-party, grand alliance and Awami League. We always take decisions after discussions,” he added.
Comparing BNP with a ‘reckless driver’, the Awami League leader said, “The government has its patience, no matter how wilder the defeated BNP is.”
Quader said the present government in its tenure will celebrate ‘Mujib Barsha’ and the ‘Golden Jubilee’ of independence. “We have taken plan to build Bangladesh as a developed nation and to implement Delta Plan. Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will give necessary directives to implement the plans,” the minister added.
