Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said BNP feels increasingly jealous of any development works or success of the government.
“BNP cannot witness any success or development works that the government did in the public interest … the party is suffering from purposive blindness,” he told a press conference at his Secretariat office here.
About terming the lockdown as “tragic mockery” by BNP, Quader said actually BNP committed “pathetic joking” with the people, and that’s why they cannot now understand what they are saying.
If they cannot perform politics or make remarks by using their conscience and wisdom, it’s natural that they would make such reckless comments, he said.
The minister said sometimes the BNP leaders say lockdown is needed and demand its strict enforcement, but few moments later they say shutdown is not a solution and demand compensation.
Once BNP carried out propaganda and misleading information against vaccination, he said, adding that BNP says the people will not abide by curfew though the government didn’t even think of imposing curfew.
He said many BNP leaders and workers have become inactive due to negative politics and irresponsible attitude of the party.
When BNP was in power, they plunged into irregularities and corruption and now they remain submerged in opportunism staying in the politics of opposition party, he said.
