BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Monday said the government will be forced to hold talks with opposition parties over holding the next general election in a credible manner and 'restore' peace in the country, reports UNB.
Quoting Moudud UNB said, "Only two-three months are left to hold the election. A situation will be created to force the government to engage in talks with the opposition parties. They won't have any other alternative to holding talks."
The BNP leader came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Jatiyatabadi Tarun Dal at the Jatiya Press Club.
Moudud said the people of the country want a change in regime. "This change can be taken place through a peaceful way or through a chaotic way. So, if the government wants a peaceful way of changing power, it must come to an understating."
He said the country's people want the government to free Khaleda Zia from jail and take steps for installing a non-party neutral government to hold the 11th parliamentary polls in a fair and credible manner.
Besides, the BNP leader said the government must dissolve parliament, reconstitute the Election Commission and deploy army with the magistracy power for ensuring a neutral and acceptable balloting. "People are united over these demands."
He said their party is in discussions with different political parties to forge a national unity to realise people's demands, restore democracy and voting rights.
Moudud criticised Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader for what he said making indecent and false comment about him.
