Awami League (AL) Acting General Secretary Mahbub-Ul-Alam Hanif on Friday said BNP leaders should join parliament to meet their moral obligation as people of the country elected them in the national election held in last December.
The AL leader made this comment while addressing a reception of four women parliamentarians at Bangabandhu Avenue’s central office of AL in the capital.“BNP leaders who got elected in the last national election, should join the parliament for showing respect to people’s mandate, if they don’t do so, people will never vote them again,” Hanif told.
“BNP decided not to take oath… They will lose the last chance if they do not come to parliament within April 30…. So, I am urging the BNP leaders who were elected to the election of the 11th Jatiya Sangsad to come to the parliament,” he said.
Woman MP’s Fazilatunnesa Indira, Nargis Rahman, Sabnam Shila and Zinnatul Bakia were given reception at the ceremony.
AL Acting General Secretary also criticised BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul’s recent remarks regarding taking oath by one of his party colleagues, saying, he does not want to come to the parliament, but he always talks about democracy.
He said militancy in the country had been created with the patronisation of BNP-Jamaat alliance.
General Secretary of Dhaka City Awami League Shahe Alam Murad, President of Central Mohila Awami League Safia Khatun, and General Secretary Mahmuda Begum Krik addressed the function, while Sabera Begum, President of Dhaka City Mohila Awami League presided over the event.
