Cabinet may be expanded, says Quader

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Cabinet may be expanded, says Quader

The Awami League (AL) general secretary, Obaidul Quader, said yesterday that the newly formed Cabinet might be expanded in the near future, if needed. “The Prime Minister has formed the Cabinet to implement the party’s election promises. The size of the Cabinet might be expanded in keeping with the demand. There is no dissatisfaction within the AL,” he said. Quader, made minister for road transport and bridges for the second consecutive

time, was talking to reporters at his Secretariat office in the city. The AL general secretary said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is serious about the performance of Cabinet members. Those who would fail in their duties and responsibilities will lose their position in the Cabinet, he added. He said this time the party president has put emphasis on districts from where there had been no minister for a long time. New faces have been picked from these districts. People have taken the new Cabinet positively. The Cabinet, comprising new and old faces, will be more dynamic, he added.

Replying to a question about senior leaders being dropped from the new Cabinet, the AL leader said changes have been made in their responsibilities.  “From now on, they can pay more attention to the party. So, saying that they have been dropped is not correct,” he added. Mentioning that the government and the party are two separate entities, Quader said senior leaders will work on making the party well-organised. The Awami League is united and stronger than in the past under the dynamic leadership of Sheikh Hasina, he added.

A 47-member new Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, was sworn in at Bangabhaban at 3pm.

The new Sheikh Hasina government’s main challenge is to curb corruption by establishing the rule of law and implementing the party’s election manifesto.

About exclusion of alliance partners of the AL from the new Cabinet, the AL minister said: “They are with us and will be with us. There is no alliance leader in the Cabinet now. But they might be inducted into the Cabinet in future.”
