The BNP has become "reckless" because of its failures and frustrations, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said.
"I'm afraid the party has been acting like reckless drivers. It may cause an accident in politics anytime," he said at a programme on Friday.
His remarks came in response to the BNP's comments on the new Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda.
BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi told a press briefing on Wednesday that the new CEC was "a spokesman of the Awami League."
Condemning the statement, Obaidul, the road transport and bridges minister, said: "BNP leaders most of the time don't know what they're talking about.
"Let me ask you (journalists). Do you also think the CEC is a spokesperson for the ruling party?"
The AL leader attended the inaugural ceremony of 'Jubojagoron Library and Research Centre' organised by Dhaka South Juba League (youth wing of Awami League) on Friday.
He called upon those making their entry into politics to acquire the habit of reading books.
"An activist in politics needs to study and become competent. Otherwise he'll end up serving the leaders."
In a same call to leaders, he said: "We have many great leaders but it is sad that they do not write books on their life and work."
The minister said no political party would be allowed to hold rallies in the capital on working days.
