Staff Reporter :
General Secretary of Bangladesh Awami League Obaidul Quader on Sunday said, BNP (Bangladesh Nationalist Party) leaders are now suffering from depression, as their dream to wage movements on the issue of quota reform failed.
 "The BNP tried to build up movements against the government centering the students' quota reform. But their dream melted away because Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina abolished all classes of quotas in the government jobs," he said.
