Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today said BNP is directly and indirectly involved in the recent violence carried out by Hefajat-e-Islam in different parts of the country.
“BNP not only patronized the recent mayhem of Hefajat-e-Islam rather it was involved with the violent acts,” he said while addressing a view-exchange with BRTC and BRTA Rajshahi Zone officials.
Quader, also Awami League general secretary, joined the meeting virtually from his official residence in Dhaka.
Quader also said none was arrested because of their affiliation with certain parties or their identities as “Alem-Ulama”.
He said those who were involved with the mayhem and who carried out attacks on houses, properties and set houses on fire are being arrested after scrutinizing video-footage.
