Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday hoped that the Eid journey would be hassle-free this time.
“The journey will be more comfortable this time than the previous Eid,” he said.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, was talking to journalists while visiting Mohakhali bus terminal in the capital to observe the Eid journey of home-goers.
Referring to the inauguration of 23 bridges on Dhaka-Tangail highway by the prime minister recently, Quader said other problems have already been solved in the roads and even it has been asked to stop digging work during Eid journey.
“Problem occurred during last Eid on Dhaka-Chittagong highway due to the construction work of Feni overpass but sufferings on the road will be within the tolerable limit,” he said.
Quader said bus counter at Sirajganj was closed following complaints from passengers.
Traffic congestion will not be created if vehicles carrying animals are parked at proper places and unfit vehicles do not ply the roads, he said.
Criticising Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) for its recent acts, Quader said the party is conspiring to create a situation like 1/11.
“A section of media is helping BNP hatch the conspiracy,” he said.
People will cast their votes in favour of Awami League as they are happy with the development activities carried out by Sheikh Hasina-led government, he said, adding that pro-liberation force will come to power again.
Replying to a question, Quader said there is no scope for inducting BNP into the election-time government.
He ruled out the possibility of inducting any BNP man into the poll-time cabinet under technocrat quota.
