Therefore, to act as a potent opposition force, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s joining was essential, he said.
His remarks came on Monday (May 20), at a meet while speaking to the media.
Others will raise issues now but from the point of political acumen, Mirza Fakhrul Islam would have been better, added Quader.
Acknowledging that a strident opposition voice is beneficial for the government, Quader observed: “If the ruling party makes a mistake then the opposition can point it out.”
