BSS: Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader yesterday said the character of BNP is to make the election of the country questionable.
“Yesterday, questioning the election randomly has become the character of the BNP. With their ill- motives, BNP continues to try to question the election results and the Election Commission (EC). Thus, it has become nothing but cheating with the people of the country,” he said.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said this in a statement given to the media.
He issued the statement to condemn and protest the statement of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir which was disseminated in the media. Referring to BNP’s ill-motives regarding the Cumilla City Corporation (CuCC) election that was held yesterday, he said whenever any BNP leader takes part in the polls, the drama of expelling them is staged.
In continuation of that, two BNP leaders, including Monirul Haque Sakku, were expelled from the party as they participated in CuCC polls, he added. Noting that BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and other BNP leaders have made fictitious remarks about Cumilla City Corporation election, he said.
that the remarks of the BNP leaders made the people frustrated as they are observing that BNP does not believe in democracy and hence, it is reluctant to take part in elections too.
