Awami League Secretary General Obaidul Quader on Saturday claimed BNP is involved in the August 21 grenade attack and the verdict of the case will be neutral.
"BNP is involved in the killings. No matter, who the killers are and how powerful they are, they won't be pardoned. Anyone who will be convicted in the trial must get the punishment," he said while visiting the construction site of a tunnel under the Karnaphuli River in the port city.
Quader, also the Road, Transport and Bridges Minister, said 24 per cent construction works on the tunnel have been completed.
Deputy project director (admin) Dr Anupam Shaha showed tunnel boring machine (TBM) to the minister, report UNB.
The four-lane tunnel under the river is being constructed aiming to build 'One City Two Towns' in light with Sanghai of China and Hong Kong, to strengthen the role of Chattogram as the centre of communications, develop the communications system of Dhaka-Chittagong-Cox's Bazar national highway and create a link with the Asia Highway Network.
The main tunnel will be 3.4km long with two tubes. A 5.35-km approach road on the west and east sides of the tunnel and 727-metre over bridge will connect Anwara upazila with the port city, said the project director.
The digging work will start in October after putting the TBM in operation, he said.
