The remittance flow has increased due to the decision to give 2.5 percent incentive on remittances sent by expatriates. Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said this.
On Tuesday (May 30), Obaidul Quader condemned and protested the statement of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and said this.
In the statement, Quader said that the BNP is being burnt due to the increase in remittances from the Bangladesh government. Any progress and success of Bangladesh has been revealed repeatedly through the negative statements of Mirza Fakhrul. The same was echoed in Mirza Fakhrul’s well-intentioned statement about increased remittance flows from the US.
He said that it is natural that those who only look to foreign masters like chatak birds asking for sanctions against the country and people, will not be able to accept the good news of increasing remittances in any way. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s timely decision to give 2.5 percent incentive on remittances sent by expatriates has increased the remittance flow.
He also said that due to the successful leadership of Bangabandhukanya, the strong economic structure of Bangladesh has been established and Bangladesh has been recognized as a safe place for investment.
While opposing the government, it wants to create an economic crisis in the country by discouraging expatriates to send remittances through legitimate channels. So BNP leaders are not happy with the good news of increasing remittances.
In the statement, he said, the current government has set a precedent of enacting effective laws to prevent money laundering and punishing the culprits exemplary. On the other hand, corruption and money laundering were institutionalized during the ill-fated BNP-Jamaat alliance regime.
Awami League General Secretary said, there is no reason for Awami League to worry about the visa policy of the United States, instead, BNPE has panicked. Instead of repenting of their past misdeeds, they are indulging in new conspiracies.
Obaidul Quader said that Gazipur City Corporation elections were held under the Election Commission in a free, fair, impartial and peaceful environment. The upcoming National Assembly elections will also be held in a free, impartial, fair and peaceful manner. This is the determination of Sheikh Hasina’s government.
He said that the disunited BNP was afraid to participate in the election knowing that it would be defeated. Therefore, they are continuing conspiracies at home and abroad to disrupt the elections and disrupt the democratic and constitutional system. The people of Bangladesh will resist all the conspiracies under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina at any cost and will continue the trend of development, progress and prosperity.
