Quader said these at a press briefing at the Awami League president’s Dhanmondi office in the capital on Thursday.

“BNP is becoming desperate to foil the election as it is approaching. Their level of sabotage may be more extensive. The horrific picture of sabotage, secret attacks is setting records. Till yesterday, 600 cars were vandalised and 10 trains were set on fire,” he added.

Regarding the new condition of the US buyer in the garment sector, Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said the United States will not be able to do anything unilaterally even if it wants. “Its friends in Europe, Asia and the Pacific are no longer in favour of taking any extreme decision on Bangladesh. ”
