Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said his political counterpart BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam is a gentleman indeed.
“Fakhrul is a gentleman and he is also good as a man,” Quader made the remarks when news on several media flooded over changing the leadership in BNP after its utter debacle in the December 30 national election.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, was talking to reporters after visiting the head office of Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) in Motijheel area of Dhaka this noon.
“BNP will see whether Fakhrul has failed to meet the party’s demand. We have no need to interfere in the matter, Quader told a questioner.
Claiming that Fakhrul belongs to a political party and thus he has to come up with many issues, Quader said, “He (Fakhrul) does not speak like a residential representative of BNP. I did not hear any abusive speech from him.”
