BNP MPs insult House by tearing up budget copies: Quader

DHAKA, July 2, 2020 (BSS) – Road Transport and Bridges Minister
Obaidul Quader today said the BNP lawmakers have insulted the
parliament by tearing up the copies of approved budget for fiscal
2020-21.

“The BNP lawmakers tear up the copies of the budget in the name of
rejecting it, which is a contempt of parliament,” he said.

Quader, also Awami League general secretary, was addressing a
virtual press briefing on post-budget reaction from his official
residence here.

He said the BNP lawmakers damaged the copies of budget publicly in
front of the House, which was tantamount to breaking their oath as a
lawmaker.

“We condemned their act. In the ongoing crisis period of the nation,
they (BNP lawmakers) did not show responsible attitude. They wanted to
halt the passage of the budget in parliament,” he said.

“They wanted to see a state without a national budget…we have
created a ray of hope among people, which was an urgent in the ongoing
pandemic situation,” he added.

Quader said Awami League contributed to all the achievements of the
Bangalee nation.

Under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh
Mujibur Rahman, he said, Awami League not only brought political
independence for Bangladesh but also are doing everything possible at
national, regional and international levels to make the country’s
independence meaningful.
