Urging the BNP to stop their one-point demand to topple the government, Awami League joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said the party should concentrate on how to appear in the upcoming national elections; otherwise, it will fall into deep crisis.
“BNP should pay attention on how to take part in the coming national elections by suspending their game of ousting the government …otherwise it [BNP] will have to pay for their ‘political error”, he said.
The ruling party leader told the journalists after holding a meeting with his party leaders at his residence at PTI road in Kushtia this morning (Sept 17).
Hanif said: “The national elections will be held in time as per the constitution and following the rules …if BNP does not participate in the elections, then it would be a repetition of their immature political wisdom.”
Criticising BNP’s top leaders including Mirza Fakhrul, Hanif said they have been waging a one-point movement of ousting the government for the last two years and even every month they are predicting that the government will collapse a month later.
But the government remains in power with its utmost capacity, he said.
Putting emphasis on holding free, fair and neutral elections, Hanif said, “Our foreign allies have a liberty to send election observers here to oversee the elections whether the polling are free fair or not as the government is ready to congratulate them.
