Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Monday said BNP is trying to create political unrest by exploiting the issue of BNP chairperson's illness.
"BNP is trying to create anarchy in the country using the issue of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia's illness," he said.
"BNP is continuously giving fictitious statement over health issue of Begum Khaleda Zia. BNP leaders would have to answer to their own party for making such fabricated statement," said Quader who chaired the meeting.
Mentioning the comments of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that Awami League will be no more if Begum Zia dies, Quader said, "Actually he [Fakhrul] wanted to say that BNP will not exist, if Khaleda is no more."
The question of non-existence of Khaleda Zia and BNP can be interlinked, he said, adding that but Awami League has been emerged from the core of the people, so, the party will remain alive till the country will exist and its red-green flag will flare up in the sky.
Criticizing the BNP leaders for creating confusion over the treatment of the BNP chief, he said the BNP leaders themselves once would have to give explanations before the party for this 'excessive politics'.
Even the people of the country is also considering that Khaleda Zia's treatment has felt prey to BNP's excessive politics, Quader stated.
