Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today (April 23) said that the country's common people are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr safely and smoothly but BNP doesn't like it.
He said: "The country's Muslim devotees are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr smoothly and safely. People are going to villages which help boost rural economy. But BNP or Mirza Fakhrul is not liking it."
Quader, also general secretary of Awami League, gave the statement in protest against BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir's falsehood and provocative comments.
In response to Mirza Fakhrul's comment "Common people are celebrating Eid amid distress and sorrow", the AL general secretary said BNP always feels anger if people celebrate any festival amid enthusiasm and festivity.
Mirza Fakhrul's comments reflected BNP's traditional character of making negative comments, Obaidul quader said.
