Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Wednesday said BNP’s politics is based on bullets, blood and bodies, not based on democracy.

BNP doesn’t believe in democratic norms and dialogue. And the politics of the party is based on bullets, blood and bodies, not based on democracy, he told reporters, after addressing a function at Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC) in the city, reports BSS.

Bangladesh Film Directors Association (BFDA) organised the function marking its 40th founding anniversary.

Hasan said the dialogue being organised by the President over Election Commission formation is an example for many countries. The President is organising dialogues for forming an independent and neutral participatory election commission, he added.

He said many countries do not organise such dialogues before forming the election commission. But, BNP wants to try to make the initiative (dialogues) questionable as the party doesn’t believe in democratic norms and elections, he added.

The minister said they (BNP) came to power through bullets and stood on blood and bodies. BNP’s founder Ziaur Rahman had captured the power by standing on the bodies, said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary. He said Zia’s wife Begum Khaleda Zia came also in power through clandestine alleys. BNP doesn’t believe in democracy and elections and always search backdoors to go to power, he added.

The party (BNP) has no confidence in the people, he said, adding that for this, they are trying to make the process of forming the EC questionable.

They (BNP) are trying to create such a situation as they can go to power through clandestine alleys. But, it will never happen again, he added.
