Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said BNP is "burning with agony in heart" witnessing the success of the government.

"BNP is suffering from inner pain after seeing various developments of the government one after another," he said while addressing a function to unveil the plaque for the inauguration of the construction work of the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Line-1 at sector 4 at Purbachal in Rupganj of Narayanganj district.

Earlier, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the construction work of the country's first-ever underground metro rail there.

Textile and Jute Minister Golam Dastagir Gazi (Birpratik), Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam, Japanese Ambassador to Bangladesh IWAMA Kiminori, Road Transport and Highways Division Secretary A B M Amin Ullah Nuri and Managing Director of Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited (DMTCL) MAN Siddique were present.

Obaidul Quader said: "Development has just started and it will continue. Seeing these development projects such as Padma Bridge, Metrorail, Bangabandhu Tunnel, Ural Setu, inauguration of 100 Bridges and 100 highways, the opposition parties are suffering from inner pain."

The AL general secretary said BNP cannot tolerate development issues like Rooppur, Matarbari, Payra and Rampal power plants and victory of maritime boundary and the victory in border of the country.

Describing the issues of fall of the government on December 10 and the arrival of Tarique Rahman as fake, he instructed the party leaders and workers to get prepared for the next election.

He said BNP started its movement with demonstration and now they are holding silent road march, he said, adding that BNP has lost its way.

"As long as the country is in the hands of Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh will not lose its way. So, be prepared, the final game will be held in December against conspiracy, militancy, arson terrorism, vote-rigging and corruption," he added.

About commuting through metro rail, the minister said that the metro rail will be launched from Agargaon to Motijheel this year for the people.

Recalling all the contribution of two persons (Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his worthy daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina) towards the country, Quader said the existence of these two great persons will not be lost ever, reports BSS
