Next elections will be held in due course,

Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said BNP’s procession with hurricane lamps seems that whether the electoral symbol of the party has been changed to hurricane lamp, reports BSS.

“The countrymen remain in fear whether BNP’s hurricane lamps would turn into   patrol bombs as they earlier hurled patrol bombs on innocent people,” he said, addressing the triennial conference of Awami League Jaldhaka upazila unit of Nilphamari.

The minister said the next general elections will be held in due time and “we want the elections to be held in a festive mood with the participation of all parties. We hope that BNP will take part in the polls.”

Hasan said the train of elections would not wait for anyone. The trains of 2014’s and 2018’s elections didn’t wait for anyone, he said, adding the train of 2024’s polls also would not wait for anyone.
