BNP to ‘place its polls-time govt formula in JS Wednesday’


Dhaka – Amid the country’s fast-evolving political situation, the main opposition BNP has planned to place its polls-time government formula in Parliament on Wednesday.A senior BNP leader who spoke on condition of anonymity told UNB on Tuesday that former Speaker and BNP leader Jamiruddin Sircar will place party chairperson Khaleda Zia’s interim-government formula in parliament tomorrow rising on point of order.
“The decision to place the proposal in parliament will be finalised at a meeting of the BNP Parliamentary Party (BNPP) tonight (Tuesday night),” the BNP leader said.
The BNPP meeting will be held at 8pm at the opposition leader’s Gulshan office with Khaleda Zia in the chair.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was learned to have told the Cabinet meeting on Monday that she herself would talk to opposition leader Khaldea Zia over the polls-time government. The Prime Minister is expected to call Khaleda Zia anytime today, the source said.
The ice in the country’s long-drawn political crisis started melting after Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, in her address to the nation on Friday, offered to form an all-party government to oversee the next general election and sought names from the opposition to accommodate them in the interim administration.
Later, on Monday, opposition leader Khaleda Zia came up with her own polls-time government formula, and proposed forming a non-partisan interim government headed by a respected person to be chosen by a consensus by the ruling and opposition camps. – UNB
