BNP MPs insult House by tearing up budget copies: Quader
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said the BNP lawmakers have insulted the parliament by tearing up the copies of approved budget for fiscal 2020-21.
Quader, also Awami League general secretary, was addressing a virtual press briefing on post-budget reaction from his official residence in the city on Thursday.
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.
Quader said Awami League contributed to all the achievements of the Bangalee nation.
