“All the political parties have been urged to participate in the upcoming local government election. So, it is not AL’s concern whether BNP is participating in the polls or not,” Quader told the media at the Secretariat in Dhaka on Tuesday (Feb 12).
While commenting over the BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami’s political relation, Quader said, “I think, BNP will not leave Jamaat as both parties hold the communal spirit.”
Responding to a query on bringing back the discipline on roads, the road transport minister said, “Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) will be overhauled in this regard.”
Quader said that it’s not possible to ban small vehicles on roads overnight.
