Quader rules out BNP’s inclusion in poll-time govt
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday said there is no plan to include BNP in the cabinet of the poll-time government as the party has no representation in the current parliament.
"During the last election in 2014, we had proposed them to take part in the poll-time government and even offered the home ministry, which was an open secret, as they had representation in parliament...Now the government has no plan to include BNP in the cabinet of the poll-time government," he told journalists at a press conference at his secretariat office in the city.
Quader said, "This is BNP's decision whether it will take part in the upcoming national elections or not... But the election train will not stop for BNP."
"We will congratulate BNP if the party joins the next polls...But it is not our responsibility to bring them in the polls," the AL general secretary said, adding this time the people will resist them if they want to obstruct the election, reports BSS.
