Prices of essentials will come under control soon: Quader


DE Online Desk
Awami League general secretary and road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday said the prices of essential commodities will be brought under control soon through multifaceted measures.
‘If the people face any crisis, it hurts Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The holy month of Ramadan is ahead, we will bring prices of commodities under control soon. Don’t lose your trust (in us). Don’t pay any heed to BNP,’ he said.
Quader was addressing a peace and democracy rally in front of the AL’s Bangabandhu Avenue central office in Dhaka under the arrangement of the party’s Dhaka city south unit.
Dhaka city south AL president Abu Ahmed Mannafi chaired the rally which was conducted by its general secretary Humayun Kabir, report agencies.
AL presidium members Muhammad Abdur Razzaque, Mostafa Jalal Mohiuddin and Qamrul Islam, joint general secretaries foreign minister Hasan Mahmud and Mahbubul Alam Hanif and organising secretary BM Mozammel Haque also spoke.
Noting that AL won the 12th parliamentary elections gaining massive votes of the people, Quader said that the new government had been formed through the election which saw 41.8 per cent voter turnout.
This government is an elected by people’s vote as twenty-eight parties contested the elections, he said.
Coming down heavily on BNP leaders for terming that the government belongs to China, India and Russia, the minister said that these countries could be friends of Awami League but no foreign force brings the party in power rather the people do so.
There is suspicion about the patriotism of those who (BNP leaders) make such comment that the government belongs to other countries, he said.
Quader described BNP’s black-flag procession programme on January 30 as a fake one as black-flag means mourning.
He urged his party men to remain alert in field so that BNP leaders and activists cannot make harm to people in the name of political programme.
The AL general secretary called upon the party leaders and workers to join ‘peace, democracy and development’ rally holding national flags in hand on that day.
