Govt has nothing to do with Khaleda’s release: Quader

Terming Khaleda Zia's release from jail 'legal matter', Road Transport and Bridges minister Obaidul Quader has said the government has no influence over the issue.

He said this at a press briefing at the political office of Awami League president Sheikh Hasina at Dhanmondi in the capital this morning.

Quader, also Awami League General Secretary, said,"BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has been imprisoned after being convicted in a corruption case. There is no relation between her imprisonment and politics,"

There is no such pressure from the mass people for releasing Khaleda Zia, he said adding that BNP has failed to create pressure to free her.

Terming BNP a failed party, Quader said there is no reason to blame the government for this.

He informed that a total of 2,076 AL candidates collected nomination papers for chairman post while 3,445 candidates for vice-chairman post to contest the upazila elections.
