The opposition leader’s comment came about four and half a months after formation of the 10th Parliament following the January 5 polls.“All political parties should reach an agreement first to hold a midterm election but we have no such environment,” she said.
Regarding the demand of the BNP, the main political rival of the ruling Awami League, for midterm election Rawshan said another election could be held if the people want that. The Jatiya Party will also take part in it she added.
Rawshan, also a senior presidium member of the Jatiya Party, said the people want guarantee of natural death and government should take effective measures in this regard.

The opposition leader expressed her concern over the incidents of growing killing, enforced disappearance and terrorist activities.
She hoped that the government would hold fair trial of seven killings in Narayanganj by carrying out proper investigation.
The JP leader mentioned that her party had observed different programme protesting the incidents and said the party would launch continuous movement in necessary to ensure natural deaths of people.
Justifying the participation of JP in the last election which was boycotted by major political parties including the BNP, she said they had no option but to take part in poll to restore peace and continue democratic process in the country.
