There is no scope to create any further debate over the caretaker government system, maintains the Awami League leader 

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said the government will form a neutral Election Commission (EC) through the search committee as the caretaker government system has been annulled following a Supreme Court verdict.

"A neutral EC will be formed through the search committee for holding neutral elections," he said while distributing deeds of plots among those who lost their land due to the Padma Multipurpose Bridge Project, at the rehabilitation site in Munshiganj in the afternoon.

The minister said the caretaker government system does not exist in the country after the Supreme Court order in 2011. "It is a settled matter, so there is no scope to create any further debate over the issue. The higher court has sent it to the museum," he added.

Quader, also the Awami League general secretary, told the function that democracy has somewhat improved in the country.

"It [democracy] is a slow process. Overnight progress is not possible," he added.

Urging all to prepare for the next national election, Quader said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wants fair polls, so everyone should prepare for the election without creating any chaos.

Criticizing BNP for making a demand for holding elections under the neutral caretaker government, the ruling party leader said: "You [BNP] want elections under a neutral government, but your leader once said that no one is neutral except the mad and children."

About the implementation of the Padma Bridge project, the minister said the bridge is the outcome of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's prudence.

Through the construction of the Padma Bridge with Bangladesh's own funds, Quader said, Sheikh Hasina has proved that Bangladeshis are not a nation of thieves, but a nation of heroes.
