Dhaka, May 12 - At a press conference held in Dhanmandi on Sunday afternoon, Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader emphasized that Bangladesh is ruled by a government elected by the people, dismissing opposition claims of unseen forces at play.

"Bangladesh is governed by a government that the people have elected," Quader stated. "It is characteristic of BNP to attribute governance to invisible forces, with Hawa Bhaban previously serving as their alternative power center. Their current predicaments and mental strain are direct consequences of their past actions," he elaborated.

Quader also criticized the opposition’s recent statements. "BNP's press conferences are exercises in turning falsehoods into perceived truths. Mirza Fakhrul and other BNP leaders engage in deceptive and propagandistic tactics."

Regarding international relations, Quader discussed the upcoming visit of US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Donald Lu, noting that the visit aims to enhance the bilateral relationship between Bangladesh and the United States.

Quader praised the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, highlighting significant socioeconomic and infrastructural developments over the past 15 years. "Under Sheikh Hasina's leadership, Bangladesh has transformed from a country grappling with a food crisis to one that is self-sufficient in food production. Additionally, her initiatives in healthcare, such as community clinics, have received global recognition," he added. - UNB
