Dhaka, March 23: Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said BNP has engaged in a deep conspiracy to destabilize the country's market system in the name of boycotting Indian products, but the people will not respond to their call.

He said this at a press conference organized at the political office of the Awami League president in Dhanmondi of the capital on Friday.

Quader said that BNP's desire to destroy relations with India is an expression of mental weakness. Their call for boycott of Indian goods will not affect the relationship between the two countries. Who called for boycott of Indian products. The people of the country will boycott them.

The bridge minister said that if a political party is bankrupt, if it is inconsiderate with a radical mentality, if it is out of diplomatic etiquette, then it talks like boycotting the neighboring state. Today India is surrounded on all three sides in terms of global reality and regional geographical location. On one side only Myanmar. Majority of our daily necessities come from India. It also has benefits. The cost of import from distant countries is also high. Therefore, the problem of destroying relations with India is a manifestation of BNP's mental disorder. They have to pay a huge penalty for not coming to the election.

He said that a senior leader of BNP is seeking the cooperation of neighboring friendly countries to save the country's democracy. On the other hand, a junior leader of BNP is calling for boycott of Indian products. In fact, BNP's politics is chaotic and confused. Now they don't understand who they want to please. Which way will BNP actually go? They are now lost like wanderers and are disoriented saying whatever they want, doing whatever they want.

Commenting on the 21 years of hostile relations with India after the assassination of Bangabandhu, the bridge minister said that it is possible to get benefits by maintaining good relations. What Awami League has done. Enclave exchange, border agreement implemented. Now there is positive progress on Teesta, Feni river water distribution which is not resolved due to good relations, resolution is also possible. There is no use in quarreling with the neighbor.
