The premier also questioned BNP's current leadership

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said BNP wants to make the next general election controversial knowing that there is no chance for them to win it.

“They know they don’t have any possibility of winning the election. So, their effort is to make it controversial, create confusion among people and harm people by any means,” she said replying to a question at a press conference in her official residence Ganabhaban.

The press conference was arranged to inform the media about the outcomes of her recent visit to the United States for joining the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Some journalists attended the press conference at Ganabhaban, while others were connected from the Prime Minister’s office through a virtual platform.

Sheikh Hasina questioned the leadership of BNP saying that one (Khaleda) is convicted for misappropriating the fund of orphans and another (Tarique) is a fugitive convicted for various misdeeds, including the August-21 grenade attack and 10-truck arm-haul cases.

“They know they won’t win. How will a party win? Where is its leadership? One is convicted for misappropriating the fund of orphans and another is a fugitive as he’s convicted for the August-21 grenade attack and 10-truck arm-haul cases. They are still there in the (party) leadership. If this is the case, under which consideration people would vote for them,” she questioned.

The prime minister said even these two top leaders will not be able to take part in the election.

“They have no belief that they can win the polls,” she said.
