Mentioning that it was Awami League government which inked the Ganges water-sharing deal with India, ruling party General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said it will resolve the Teesta water-sharing problem soon through discussions.
He made the remarks while briefing reporters after inaugurating BRTC bus services on Sylhet-Sreemangal and Sylhet-Habiganj routes from his official residence in the capital.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said BNP forgot the issue of Ganges water-sharing while in power but Awami did not forget it.
Talking about the nature of BNP’s democracy, he said their democracy is to reestablish the rein of looting of Hawa Bhaban and boycotting polls on the voting day.
Quader also took a swipe at the party for not holding its council for long. “BNP’s main problem now is that they are under divided leadership.”
Mentioning that BNP’s programmes about border problems are mere eyewash, he said the government is sincere in keeping bordering areas stable and developing those.
