Stating that caretaker government is now the most live issue, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday said the people of Bangladesh will not be deceived thrice by participating in the next polls under the Awami League regime.
Speaking at a discussion, he also said Awami League is against the election under a non-party impartial government as the party knows very well that it will not get more than 10 percent votes in credible polls because of its widespread plundering and misdeeds.
“Awami League leaders and ministers are saying the caretaker government is now a dead issue. Why is it a dead issue? This is the most live issue now,” the BNP leader said.
He said the people of Bangladesh witnessed the parliamentary elections in 2014 and 2018. “They won’t go back to face that situation again. There’s no question of doing it.”
Bangladesh Hindu Bouddha Christian Oikya Parishad arranged the program at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU), marking the first death anniversary of the organization’s founding president and former BNP MP and state minister for water resources Advocate Gautam Chakraborty,
Fakhrul described Gautam Chakraborty as an honest, humble and good human being and recalled his contributions to politics, democratic movements and the BNP. “He was an asset in politics.”
