Convener of Jatiya Oikya Prokriya Dr Kamal Hossain on Tuesday called upon the people of all walks of life to join together for 'greater national unity' to ensure a good national election.
"People are the owners of the country while the government is only their service provider. If they (govt) don't understand it, people need to play the role of the owner (of the country) to make them understand it," he said.

The noted jurist also said people must be active to realise their rights, protect human rights, and ensure good governance and constitutional rule in the country.
"There's no reason to feel helpless. We must realise our demands from the government...we need to apply our strength keeping it in mind that we've some responsibilities as the owner of the country," he observed.
