Staff Reporter: Obaidul Quader, general secretary of the ruling Awami League, thinks that the BNP will take part in the next parliamentary elections as it did in the last parliamentary elections.
He said, “The BNP knows that there is no alternative to change of power except elections, so whatever they say, they will come to the polls.”
The BNP boycotted the 10th parliamentary election as it was not under a non-party government. But the Eleventh Parliament took part in the election. The BNP has made old demands before the 12th parliamentary elections. They say otherwise they will not take part in the election.
Speaking at a press conference at his official residence on Sunday, Quader further said, “The BNP is staying away from the elections by showing disrespect to the people and saying that democracy is missing. People do not think that their recklessness and the nefarious policy of cutting off their own noses and breaking the next journey has not yielded any results in the past and will continue to do so in the future. The BNP has to come to the polls to save the party’s declining existence and save its supporters and workers from wrath. ”
Obaidul Quader also claimed that the BNP was taking part in the UP elections by hiding its identity. BNP leaders do not do what they say in public, and they do not say what they do in secret. That is why the people have turned away after realizing the duality of the BNP. ”
Obaidul Quader remarked that the BNP seeks democracy outside its own party.
“Such allegations are like putting pressure on Udor Pindi Budho. The BNP is creating obstacles in the way of democracy, they are looking for a way to come to power in an undemocratic way without following the path of democracy. ”
