Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said BNP is getting infuriated as Bangladesh is advancing in every socioeconomic index.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said this while addressing a press conference on contemporary issues at the Secretariat in the capital.

The minister came up with the remark as the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leaders claimed that a stable macro-economy was successfully implemented during its regime.

Refuting BNP’s claim, Quader said that their remark is not true at all and their demand is as untrue and baseless like their other statements.

“There was extreme instability in the country’s economic development during the BNP’s reign, while the national budget was not self-dependent and there was no capacity to implement it,” he said. The development policy and strategy of the BNP were wrong and anti-people, he added.

The AL general secretary said that they (BNP) must not have forgotten that farmers had to sacrifice their lives for fertilizer during their regime.
