Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday welcomed BNP for its decision to take part in the Ranpur by-election saying it is a very positive move in politics.

“Hope, this election will be a competitive one, and the government will provide all necessary support  so that it can be held in a free and fair manner,” he said.

Quader, also Awami League general secretary, came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after visiting a project inTongi upazila in Gazipur on Tuesday morning, reports UNB.

The by-election to the Rangpur-3 seat, which fell vacant following the death of Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad, will be held on October 5.

On September 6, five people, including two women, collected  nomination forms of BNP to contest the by-election with its ticket.

They are BNP’s  Rangpur city unit late president Mozaffar Hossain’s wife Sufia Hossain, its current president Kausar Zaman Babla, general secretary Sahidul Islam Miju, Rangpur district unit general secretary Roisuddin and party founder member Moshiur Rahman Jadu Mia’s daughter Rita Rahman.

About BNP’s criticism over government decision to collect toll from vehicles which ply highways, he said the renovation of roads is required for their maintenance and those who use the roads and highways have some responsibilities.

BNP did not construct flyovers, metro rail and so they do not have any idea about their maintenance, he said adding they give a blind eye despite knowing the practices in different countries of the world, he added.

Gazipur City Corporation Mayor Md Jahangir Alam, Deputy Commissioner SM Tariqul Islam and Police Commissioner Anwar Hossain were also present.
