“Reshuffling cabinet portfolios is a usual practice. Such changes are made in every country when necessary,” Quader added on the issue.
Quader, the general secretary of Awami League, back from Singapore after two months of treatment, also touched on the issue of BNP finally deciding to join the parliament.
“It is their internal issue, we won’t comment on it. But, Mr Fakhrul should have joined the parliament to deliver their (BNP) statement,” he said.
Also casting light on the recent issue of infighting inside Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of ruling Awami League, he said: “As I was abroad, I have no insight.”
He said, he will disclose further information after inquiring about the issue internally.
