Rejecting BNP's demand for a midterm election, Information Minister Hasan Mahmud has said the next parliamentary polls will be held in due time according to the constitution.

“People have rejected BNP as it has no connection with them. I will request the party to start working with the people for the next four and half years, as the next election will be held then as per the constitution,” said Hasan Mahmud.

The information minister said this at a roundtable meeting on “Historic May 17, Sheikh Hasina’s homecoming day”, held at Engineers Institute Bangladesh in the capital on Tuesday.

Hasumonir Pathsala arranged the program to mark the homecoming day of Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina.

The minister also alleged that BNP’s leadership has been accused and convicted for corruption.

Urging the party to avoid “sick” politics for the sake of the country, he said BNP can rebuild its strength if it removes its corrupted and convicted leaders.

“Please criticize the government for the sake of the country, but not only for political benefits,” Hasan, who is also Awami League's publication and publicity secretary, said.

Criticizing BNP, Hasan remarked that the party chief, Khaleda Zia, was sent to jail for her corruption. “Khaleda would not have been jailed if she had not embezzled orphans’ money.”

State Minister for Information Dr Murad Hasan, and Samakal’s Associate Editor Ajoy Das Gupta, among others, were also present at the roundtable, presided over by Hasumonir Pathsala President Marufa Akter Popy.
