Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said the demand for deferring two Dhaka City Corporation elections will create confusion among people.

The government is ready to extend all kinds of support to hold a free, fair and peaceful election, he said after the signing ceremony of upgrading four-lane Ashuganj port-Sarail-Darkar-Akhaura land port road at a city hotel in the capital.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, made the remarks in reaction to BNP’s Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s demand for the deferment of the city polls.
