Bangladesh incurred losses in 21 yrs due to enemy with India: Quader

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said Bangladesh incurred significant losses over the past 21 years due to the absence of a strong relationship with India.

Quader said this while addressing a rally in Mohammadpur area of Dhaka on Saturday.

“People are the lone source of our force. We maintain a friendly relationship with India for our own sake instead of slavery,” Quader said.

Ganges Water Sharing Treaty was signed during the tenure of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and land boundary dispute with India has also been resolved during her tenure, he mentioned.

Bangladesh won maritime border dispute with India in court during the tenure of AL, he mentioned.

On the other hand, Khlaeda Zia ‘forgot’ to raise the Ganges water issue before the Indian government when she visited the neigbouring country as the prime minister, he said.

AL Presidium Members Jahangir Kabir Nanak and Abdur Rahman, Organizing Secretaries BM Mozammel Haque, Mirza Azam and Afjal Hossain, Liberation War Affairs Secretary Mrinal Kanti Das, Health Affairs Secretary Rokeya Sultana, Agriculture and Cooperative Affairs Secretary Faridunnahar Laily and Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua also addressed the rally, among others.

AL's Dhaka City North unit President Sheikh Bazlur Rahman chaired the rally which was moderated by its General Secretary SM Mannan Kachi.
