Information Minister and also the Awami League’s (AL) publicity and publication secretary Dr. Hasan Mahmud on Friday said BNP is going to make the same mistakes by boycotting the upcoming upazila parishad elections.
BNP has chosen the path of self-destruction and shrinking through boycotting the elections, he added.
He came up with the statements in a press conference at the AL president’s Dhanmondi office in the capital at noon on Friday.
He also said, boycotting of the January 2014 polls was suicidal for BNP. Again, they are choosing the same path by taking decisions of not participating in upcoming upazila election and the by-polls to the vacant mayoral post of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC).
A meeting of AL’s publicity and publication’s co-committee was held at Dhanmondi today. After the meeting, AL leaders talked to the media.
Earlier on Thursday night, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that the party has decided not to participate in the upcoming upazila election and the by-polls of DNCC.
