Dhaka, Jan 2 (UNB) - Housing and Public Works Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain on Wednesday urged the elected BNP MPs to accept people’s verdict and take oath.
“It will not be wise to reject the people’s verdict. Though they (BNP) are less in number, they can talk in favor of people. If BNP refrained from going to the parliament, they will do a mistake,” he said while talking to reporters at the Secretariat on Wednesday.
Replying to a query about how Jatiya Party and BNP will play effective role in the parliament, Engineer Mosharraf Hossain said, “It’s possible to play an effective role by 30-35 Parliament members of Jatiya Party and BNP as the opposition.”
The Minister also said the people cast their votes in favor of the development after realising the propaganda and false assurances given by BNP.
Responding to another question on if there is any possibility of becoming a minister again, he said, “I don’t know. The Prime Minister will take the decision.”
Mentioning that his ministry has many successes in last five years, Mosharraf said they have made many developments in the housing sector. “Earlier, the government housing was only eight percent which is now around 30 percent.”
Besides, works for constructing 543 apartments for Mirpur slum dwellers is going on in full swing, he said.
