‘No foreign pressure for caretaker govt’


City Desk  :
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said there is no foreign pressure for restoring caretaker government system in Bangladesh.

“European Union, the USA, the UK or no other friendly country put pressure on Bangladesh over caretaker government system. Any country didn’t interfere in internal matters of Bangladesh,” he said, reports BSS.


Quader said these while talking to journalists after a board meeting of Bridge Authority at Setu Bhaban in the capital’s Banani area.
He said BNP wants a caretaker government which can assure the party of getting elected in polls.

Caretaker government made biased behavior in 2001 and 2006, he said, adding: “We don’t want to bring a dead issue like caretaker government to life.”
