The government failed to resolve the Rohingya crisis and some issues with India due to its diplomatic failure.

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir made the allegation on Saturday while addressing a discussion on Saturday.

"We have seen the Prime Minister was shaking hand with Queen Elizabeth at the Commonwealth summit in London. But what are the results? You still couldn't send back even a single Rohingya out of 10 lakhs," he said.

The BNP leader said the government still could not resolve the Teesta water-sharing dispute, reports UNB.

Fakhrul said the current government will not be able to resolve any problem of the country as it has no relation with people.

Jatiya Jubo Sanghati of Jatiya Party (Zafar) arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club marking its founding anniversary.

About the 11th parliamentary elections, Fakhrul said the government should be ashamed of talking about the general election since it is not allowing the country's one of the biggest political parties to carry out normal political activities.

"We would like to clearly say that the election will be held in the country only when a proper environment and a level-playing field will be created," he said.

"Election will be held when Khaleda Zia will be freed and lead us...we hope good sense will prevail upon you," Fakhrul added.
