Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) requested political parties to refrain from hampering economic development for personal benefits ahead of national elections.   

“We call upon political parties not to hostage the country’s economy due to political reasons”, said President of DCCI Abul Kasem Khan.

He said it to media on Saturday at a programme titled “DCCI Mezbaan” marking the 60th founding anniversary of it (DCCI) at Golf Garden in the capital.

Khan, explaining that violence upsets economic progress, he said the body does not expect any political chaos to break loose before the election.

 “We don’t want to see violence for political reason ahead of national polls” he said.

“We want to see all parties should take part in the polls in a peaceful manner,” added the DCCI chief.
