Irresponsible comments of responsible persons unacceptable: Quader

Popular News

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said that irresponsible comments from any responsible persons whether they are politicians or administrative officers cannot be acceptable.

“Some responsible political leaders and government officers are making irresponsible and reckless comments on  different issues of the country,” he said.

Quader, also the ruling Awami League general secretary, made the statements while addressing a virtual press briefing from his official residence on the parliament premises in the capital on Friday.

Obaidul Quader said not only politicians but some high government officials are also crossing their limits by making comments at different discussions, meetings and seminars. “It is extremely important for everyone from politicians to government officials to abide by code of conduct and they should not cross their limits,” he warned.

Talking over second phase Union Parishad polls held on Thursday, the senor AL leader said incidents of violence during the polls in several places are very much unexpected and sorrowful.

He urged the Election Commission (EC) and the law enforcement agencies to take the highest cautionary measures to keep congenial atmosphere at the elections to avoid any untoward incidents in the next phase polls.

Turning to BNP, the AL general secretary said now it has become every day’s political go of BNP to make blind criticism against Sheikh Hasina-led government. Though BNP cannot do anything for the people and the country, the party only can make falsehood and spread propaganda delicately, he said.

In the long run, Quader said, BNP’s propaganda and falsehood would go against themselves and has already gone too but they cannot understand it.

Mentioning that the BNP Secretary General is playing his old record that judiciary is being ruined, he said such allegations are baseless as it has become BNP’s habit to continuously make such imaginary comments.
