BNP doesn’t want a democratic system: Ashraf

Awami League Presidium Member also the public administration minister Syed Ashraful Islam on Thursday said that BNP does not want a democratic system in the country and thus it boycotts election frequently.


Mentioning that election is the main tool to come to the state power, Syed Ashraf said boycotting election is a very lamentable matter in a democratic country.


Raising questions over BNP’s election boycott, Syed Asharaf said no one will come out of the cantonment with a military convoy to put Khaleda in the citadel of power.


The former AL general secretary came up with these observations while addressing a rally in Dhaka organised by Dhaka south unit of Awami League marking the third anniversary of January 5 national elections, that the party has dubbed “the day democracy triumphed.”


He said there is no need of army or caretaker government in the country for holding a general election as the country is being run in a democratic manner successfully.


Asking Khaleda what she got after boycotting the January 5, 2014, election, Ashraful said, there is no history of Awami League to boycott election.
