BNP has become detached from people due to their past activities, says the ruling party leader
The caretaker government system will never return in Bangladesh, says Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif.
Those who are dreaming of another caretaker government in Bangladesh defying the High Court order will never see it come true, he said while talking to the media after a meeting of the ruling party's district unit in Chandpur on Saturday.
“Every political party or leader has the right to participate in or boycott any election but the caretaker government system will never return in Bangladesh,” he said on the BNPs repeated calls for an impartial polls-time government.
Regarding BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s comment that the Awami League will not get 30 seats in the next national election, Hanif said BNP chief Khaleda Zia had also made such comments during 2001 to 2006.
“It’s an irony of fate that BNP itself got less than 30 seats in the national election in 2008,” Hanif mentioned.
“BNP has become so detached from people due to their past activities, corruption and killing with petrol bombs that there is a serious doubt whether they’ll ever win any election,” the ruling party leader said.
Responding to another query, Hanif said they want an election with the participation of all parties and people’s spontaneous response.
