Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday accused BNP of making falsehoods capitalising on the global fuel, power and economic crisis aiming to gain political interest.
Referring to the existing global crisis resulting from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, he said adding "The crisis is not only in Bangladesh but also in the whole world, rather BNP is trying to take political advantage capitalising on the global fuel, power and economic crisis gripped by Russia-Ukraine war."
The minister made these comments while attending a discussion marking the 76th birth anniversary of Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Krishibid Institute Bangladesh (KIB) auditorium in Dhaka, reports BSS.
Bangladesh Awami Juba League arranged the discussion marking the birth anniversary of the Prime Minister.
The whole world is now facing severe fuel and power crises ultimately due to the influence of the Russia-Ukraine war, Obaidul Quader added.
Lauding the role of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he said, "None was the most honest, efficient and courageous leader in Bangladesh except Sheikh Hasina after the period of 1975."
Sheikh Hasina, also a daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, never doing politics for the interest of her own fortune and happiness, said Quader, adding "Sheikh Hasina is doing politics for changing the fate of the people and materialising the dream of her father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman."
Sheikh Hasina is the most successful 'statesman' in the history of independent Bangladesh after the period of 75, he told the meeting.
Chaired by Jubo League Chairman Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash, the programme was attended, among others, by noted Journalist Ajoy Das Gupta and Jubo League General Secretary Mainul Hossain Khan Nikhil.
Jubo League Publicity and Publication Secretary Joydeb Nandi moderated the function.
