Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said Bangladesh government had no hand behind India’s refusal of entry to Khaleda Zia’s British lawyer Alexander Carlile.

He termed it ‘an internal matter of the Indian government’.

Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, was talking to journalists while inspecting the road condition in Chandra area of Gazipur on Friday noon.

Carlile landed at New Delhi airport on Wednesday night and was scheduled to brief journalist on the judicial system and current political atmosphere in Bangladesh at a Delhi hotel on Thursday.

But he could not hold the press briefing as he was pushed back from Delhi airport. The airport authorities told him that his visa had been cancelled.

Later, Carlile told journalists over phone that India bowed down to the pressure of Bangladesh.

However, Quader said the Election Commission (EC) would work freely to make the three city corporation polls fair and impartial and the government has no role here.

He assured all Eid holidaymakers of comfortable journey during the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha.
