BNP senior leader Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan on Sunday said a fair, credible and inclusive election is the only safe way-out for the ruling Awami League.
“There’s the only safe way for Awami League to get out is a free, fair and participatory election. Or else, the ruling party will be the worst sufferer,” he said.
Moyeen, also a BNP standing committee member, came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Bangladesh Ganotantrik Sangskritik Jote at the Jatiya Press Club.
He accused Awami League of snatching people’s voting rights, annihilating democracy, and stigmatising the judiciary and law enforcers.
“People won’t sit idle if they try to grab power again. People will surely realise their demands this time,” the BNP leader warned.
Motioning that people want the next election to be held under a neutral administration, Dr Moyeen said, “No way except holding the polls under a non-party impartial government is open for Awami League.”
He also alleged that Awami League has been repressing and suppressing people over the last 10 years. “They’re still continuing their repressive acts.”
The BNP leader urged the government to come to the path of understanding to hold the next polls in a fair and acceptable manner, and thus ‘restore’ democracy in the country.
