General Secretary of Awami League and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said a fitting response will be given to BNP if it tries to instigate and resort to violence in the name of “political movement”.
He made the remark while addressing the 30th conference of Road and Transport Engineers’ Association in Dhaka’s Tejgaon area as the chief guest.
Describing various achievements of the AL-government over the past 14 years, Quader said that smart road networks have to be developed to turn Bangladesh into a “smart” country.
