Quader made the remarks in reply to queries by journalists at the ferry terminal in Louhajang upazila of Munshiganj.
The ministers of the new government were on their way to Tungipara in Gopalganj to pay homage to the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu.
“The opposition could not even wage a movement for ten minutes in the last ten years, what will they do now?” Quader questioned.
