‘No need to discuss poll time govt’

Popular News

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said that there is no need to discuss election time government.

“There is no need to discuss election time government,” he said while speaking at a press conference from his official residence on parliament premises in the capital.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, came up with the remark as Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) wants to discuss the election time government.

The AL spokesperson sought cooperation of all political parties, including BNP, and others concerned in forming a neutral Election Commission (EC).

“We are seeking cooperation from all concerned, including BNP, in forming a neutral EC, not for a neutral government,” he said.

Quader said all things related to elections are under the jurisdiction of the EC, while the commission is all in all in holding elections.

During elections, he said, the government performs its routine works only and it provides all-out support to the EC in holding elections in a free, fair and neutral manner.

Responding to the allegations of BNP, Quader said the country’s people are giving their mandates to the Awami League time and again to keep them safe from the BNP’s misrules.

Mentioning that the people of the country are in a comfortable position during the reign of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government, he said the people are not so confused that they would fall into the trap of BNP’s reckless politics.

Quader said the people turned away their faces from the BNP long ago and it was proved very clearly in the recent by-polls and local government elections.

Later the minister also joined a council session of Tongibari Upazila under Munshiganj, where AL presidium member Abdur Razzaque, organizing secretary Mirza Azam and liberation war affair secretary, among others, addressed.
