Journalists don’t need to enter central bank: Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul on Saturday said there is no need for journalists to enter the central bank because all the information they require are available on the bank’s website, reports UNB.

"In which country can one enter the central bank freely? Can anyone enter India's central bank? Everything is on the website. Why do you need access?, he said.

Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said these while replying to journalists regarding their access to the central bank at a press conference in Dhaka’s Dhanmondi.

Responding to a query regarding lifting the US ban on RAB, the minister said, "I will be clear about it once I talk to the Prime Minister's adviser whether his statement in front of journalists after dinner was properly published. He (the PM's adviser) might have asked the US Assistant Secretary of State to withdraw it (sanctions)."

Regarding BNP's anti-India stance, the minister said he saw in the media that BNP will reconsider its anti-India stance. “Instead of opposing, can they adopt a middle path? They have no issue at hand; they bring something up just to show they existence. In the end, from the mass uprising, they had to resort to leaflet distribution."
