DOT Desk: Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the BNP was jealous of the government’s achievement in increasing remittance and was trying to cause a financial crisis by discouraging expatriates from sending money to Bangladesh through legal channels, reports TBS.
“It is obvious that those who look forward to sanctions on the country and its people by their foreign masters will not be able to accept the positive news in regards to remittance,” he said in a press release yesterday to condemn and protest the statement of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
On Monday (29 May), Mirza Fakhrul, while speaking at an event on the occasion of Ziaur Rahman’s 42nd death anniversary, disputed the Awami League’s claim that remittances from the US have started to increase. He said, “Most people who go to America don’t send remittances; those come mainly from the Middle East.”
