Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader has termed the government’s recent decision on hiking fuel price and transport fare as an anti-people move.  

“The government has irrationally increased the prices of diesel and kerosene overnight, causing hardship for common people. Increasing the prices of fuel and transport fare is an  anti-people decision,” he said, in a written statement, on Monday.

GM Quader, also deputy leader of the opposition in parliament, urged the government to reduce the increased fuel prices and fares of bus and launch considering the sufferings of living of people.

“During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, millions of people have become jobless and are living inhuman lives. In this circumstance, the increased prices of diesel and kerosene and fares of buses and launches will make the situation worse which is not acceptable,” he said.
