There is no obstacle in the functioning of the twelfth national parliament

General Secretary of Awami League and Minister of Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Quader said that there is no obstacle in the functioning of the 12th National Parliament. There are opposition parties and independents in the parliament to criticize the government. He said this to reporters after formally submitting the nomination papers of the Awami League for the reserved women’s seat in the 12th National Parliament at the Election Commission in the capital’s Agargaon on Sunday (February 18) afternoon.

Why will parliament not be effective? Where is the obstacle? Awami League general secretary said that the election was free and fair. Where more than 41 percent votes were received. In many countries of the world, there is no chance to say that the vote count is less in Bangladesh. 28 parties participated in the election. There is also an opposition party. Jatiya Party Parliament has already started its activities. There are opposition parties in parliament and even independents, who can criticize the government if they feel the need.

Obaidul Quader said, there are independents in the parliament, there are opposition parties. There is no hindrance here in the functioning of the Parliament. Road Transport and Bridges Minister said, we are cautious. If anyone does conspiratorial, terrorist activities regarding the January 7 election, we will definitely resist it with the people.

Awami League general secretary said about BNP’s movement, BNP’s movement is the bullying of Ashad. There must be people to make a movement. Not with activists. Obaidul Quader said that there was no material issue of the movement in the country even before the election, and it is not there yet. BNP has made a mistake due to its trend of negative politics. The team is stuck in the sand.

Awami League general secretary said about BNP leaders’ statements about banning BNP in politics and establishing Bakshal-2, we have no such thought. They are doing it themselves. Besides, there is not so much headache about BNP. BNP’s movement program is just a roar of insults. Could not involve people in the movement. BNP could not show what it said on its face. Although no one from Chhatra League or Jubo League spoke about banning BNP, no leader of the main Awami League made such a statement.

In response to the question whether the Jatiya Party can play the role of an effective opposition party with 13 members including reserved women in the Jatiya Sangsad, the Awami League General Secretary said, let it be seen in the Parliament first.

A representative group of Awami League including Awami League organizing secretary Abu Saeed Al Mahmud Swapan, office secretary Barrister Biplab Barua was present on the occasion.
