Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has blamed BNP over the price hike of essential commodities.
He said, “BNP is instigating from behind soaring prices of essential commodities. They are silent. They are fueling to create instability across the country. We are ready.”
The Road Transport and Bridges Minister said this while at a programme at the party president’s Dhanmondi political office on Friday.
AL sub-committee which was formed marking the 21st national council arranged the programme.
About the chaos created by pro-BNP lawyers inside courtroom, the AL general secretary said their activities were an unforgivable offense, adding it is not a political case against BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia, rather it is a graft case.
The government cannot release Khaleda Zia politically as it has nothing to do in graft cases, he said.
Quader said BNP is spreading falsehood over the graft case against Khaleda Zia. “BNP leaders are saying Khaleda Zia has been kept in jail politically. But they are falsifying. They are doing so deliberately,” he added.
The AL general secretary said pro-BNP lawyers turned the court premises into a battle-field.
