Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said he has no apathy to serve as the party General Secretary Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wants him.
He said he is physically more fit than any time after his operation.
Quader said he has no objection even if Sheikh Hasina wants change in the general secretary post.
The Road Transport and Bridges Minister was addressing a press conference at his ministry office at Secretariat in the city.
Quader said, "I have never said that I am not interested to serve as the general secretary." He said there is no unhealthy race over grabbing posts in the party and all party leaders abide by the decision of the party leader Sheikh Hasina who herself nominated the central committee members. In reply to a question, Quader said he feels no problem in dealing with the activities of the ministry and the party simultaneously.
About possible change in the central committee, he said the party will not be benefitted if the leaders having poor performance in party activities are kept in the committee.
