Dhaka – The BNP thinks the allegation of graft in Padma Bridge project is the issue, and the Canada court verdict finding ‘no proof’ of bribery conspiracy in the case is not worthy of consideration, bdnews24.com reported on Saturday.“The reality is that the World Bank withdrew funds (it had promised) due to an allegation of corruption in the Padma Bridge project,” BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said in reply to reporters’ queries at a programme on Saturday, the report said.
He said his party ‘never’ commented on any court verdict over the matter.
“We said that the allegation of corruption surfaced. Now what has been proved or what has not been proved – it’s not a matter of our consideration,” he said.
Speaking about the new Election Commission at the programme to mark the unveiling of three books at Amar Ekushey Book Fair, Mirza Fakhrul reiterated his reservation about the impartiality of new Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda.
“The commission led by this CEC will never be able to play an impartial role,” he said.
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in Bangladesh had earlier said it had found no truth to the allegations of graft in the Padma Bridge project. – News Desk
