BNP will attend Awami League National Council


The BNP has decided to respond to the Awami League’s National Council invitation by registering its participation.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, the party’s Joint Secretary General Syed Moajjem Hossain said, “They invited us. We are very happy. We will go.”“We invited them to our conference. They did not come. They did not even care to make a courtesy call expressing inability to attend. But we shall attend,” he said.
The Awami League invited BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Thursday to its 20th National Council to be held on Saturday and Sunday.
“You [AL] didn’t attend our council. You didn’t even say sorry over telephone as part of courtesy for not coming to our council. But we are not narrow minded like you and you will get proof on the council day that BNP is a moderate and democratic political party,” BNP leader Syed Moazzem Hossain Alal said.
The BNP joint secretary general said at a memorial programme at city’s Jatiya Press Club.
Jatiyatabadi Bondhu Dal organised the programme in memory of the demise of BNP standing committee member Hannan Shah who died on September 27 at a Singapore Hospital.
On Thursday, ruling Awami League invited BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir to its 20th council scheduled to be held on October 22-23 in Dhaka’s Suhrawardy Udyan.
A delegation of the Awami League led by Deputy Office Secretary Mrinal Kanti Das went to the BNP’s Nayapaltan central office around 11:00am and handed over two separate letters to Fakhrul. Fakhrul accepted the letters.
Later, in a press briefing at BNP’s Nayapaltan office, Fakhrul told journalists that they will decide over attending Awami League’s council at a meeting in the party’s forum.
“We are happy that they invited us. We too invited them in our council, but they didn’t come”, said Fakhrul.
