'India expects neutral election in Bangladesh'
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, including some top party leaders, has met the Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel. The 45-minute-long meeting started at 8pm on Sunday. After the meeting, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told the reporters that they had discussed various important domestic issues with the visiting Indian minister while Rohingya crisis and the next general election were the two focal points of discussion. “We told her that we want India, along with other leading nations, to play a significant role in resolving the crisis as Bangladesh has only allowed the Rohingya refugees on a temporary basis,” he said. “She assured us that her country had been positively considering a permanent settlement of the crisis,” the BNP secretary general added. During the meeting, the Indian external affairs minister was also told about the importance of a free and fair national election with the participation of all political parties for the continuation of democratic practices in Bangladesh. Mirza Fakhrul, quoting Sushma, said that India, as a neighbouring democratic country, also expects a neutral election to be held in Bangladesh. The meeting was also attended by senior BNP leaders including Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, and Riaz Rahman. Meanwhile, Rowshan Ershad, opposition leader in the parliament and presidium member of Jatiya Party, also held a meeting with Sushma Swaraj at the same venue following the BNP’s meeting. Various issues including Teesta water sharing, Rohingya crisis, implementation of the development projects and next parliamentary election were discussed during the 25-min-long meeting.
