Bnp fears if another farcical election is being planned


BNP yesterday expressed its frustration over the statement of Awami League general secretary Syed Ashraful Islam that next election would also be held under the AL chief and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
“We are frustrated at the statement of the Public Administration Minister. We apprehend whether the next election will also be a farcical like January 5 poll,” said BNP spokesperson Dr Asaduzzaman Ripon at a press conference at party headquarters.He comments came hours after Syed Ashraful Islam made the remarks while talking to reporters following placing wreath at the mazar of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Tongipara in Gopalganj.
The AL leader further said the next election would be held under present constitution and warned that there would have no existence of BNP if does not take part in the next poll.
Ripon, also international affairs secretary of BNP said they want the ruling Awami League to hold a dialogue with them on the framework of a neutral election time administration for holding a free and fair poll.
“We hope that the ruling party will respond to their call to hold an acceptable election by shunning their disagreement,” he said.
The BNP leader said the government has planted a toxic tree through amending the constitution that crippled the country’s politics.
He welcomed the initiative of Gano Forum president Dr Kamal Hossain to restore the democracy in the country.
Ripon assured the ruling party that if they voted to power they would not practice politics of vendetta since their party is neither a guerilla nor a revolutionary party.
He said the BNP leaders and activists including party chief Khaleda Zia happy with the exchange of enclaves that recognized citizenship of thousands deprived people in the enclaves.
“Now, Bangladeshi flags are flying in the enclaves and their people have got the test of independence after a long,” he said.
The BNP leader said they want the government would take necessary steps so that all people in the enclaves get all the citizen rights.
Barrister Ziaur Rahman, Advocate Nitai Roy Chowdhury, Sanaullah Miah, Advocate Masud Ahmed Taluker, Abdus Salam Azad, among others, were present at the press conference.
