Quader says no plan of government for early election

Al Mahmood

Road Tran-sport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on wednesday said there are no plans or possibilities for early elections. “I have already told that we are ready to take part in the polls whether it is held after one, three or six months later. But there is no plan or possibility of early elections,” the minister at a press conference held at the ministry’s conference room told this at the Secretariat in the city.”Whenever the Elections Commission (EC) will hold the elections, we will be ready to take part in the polls. But we prefer that the polls would be held in December, the month of Victory,” added the Awami League general secretary.
Quader, categorically, also said they began to take preparations much earlier and already has made a draft list of possible candidates in district and divisional levels. Referring to the graft cases against Khaleda Zia, Quader said the cases were not filed by the Awami league government. These were filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) during the previous caretaker government’s regime, he also added. “But if she gets convicted in the cases, they (BNP) will say that the government has interfered in the matter. However, if she is proved innocent, they will define the judiciary as independent,” the Bridges Minister said. Speaking about AL’s candidate in the DNCC bypolls, AL general secretary said that, “We are not thinking about charming candidate but for winnable candidate”. However, in this regard he was unwilling to comment further. Quader condemning BNP’s vandalism in the city on Tuesday said, “We are in doubt about BNP whether they are going back to the way of violence. I think they want to choose the way of violence as they failed to wage movement”.
