Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said, will there be any compatible person than BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in the vacant Bogura-6 constituency? Is anybody new coming to deliver strong message in the parliament than Mirza Fakhrul Islam? I don’t think so.
The Road Transport and Bridges Minister who came to home after receiving treatment in Singapore made this reaction while discussing with the newsmen at Setu Bhaban in the capital on Monday.
Obaidul Quader said, from the point of heaviness Mirza Fakhrul could serve the purpose better. He could deliver strong message from the strong opposition party.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was elected Member of Parliament from Bogura-6 constituency with symbol sheaf of paddy in the eleventh national parliament election. Election Commission declared the seat vacant as he did not take the oath and the by-election will be held on June 24.
Obaidul Quader made a comment that Mirza Fakhrul’s joining in parliament was much needed. He said, they have joined the parliament and in this regard a good sense has arisen. Two members of Gonoforum also joined the parliament. This participation is not important from the point of number rather it is important to serve the purpose of BNP as an opposition party.
