Menon claimed that people could not cast their votes in the December-30 national election 

Taking a jab at Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon, for his claim that people could not cast their votes in the last parliamentary elections, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader questioned whether he would have made the claim had he been a minister.

“He (Menon) is a senior leader. I humbly want to know whether he would have made the same claim had he been a minister. Why did he make the claim at this time, after so many days?” Quader said on Sunday.

He made the statement while replying to queries from reporters at the Secretariat, reports UNB.

Addressing the council of his party’s Barishal district unit on Saturday, Menon claimed that people could not cast their votes in the December 30 general election and he was a witness to it.

Meanwhile  Rashed Khan Menon on Sunday issued a statement saying his comments were taken out of context.

The statement signed by a senior Worker Party leader, Kamrul Ahsan read: “Mass media has mis-portrayed my statement to the 14 party alliance at the conference of the party’s Barishal district unit.”
