There is no need for Awami League-led 14-party alliance to sit with the BNP for dialogue, 14-party spokesperson Mohammed Nasim said on Monday.
“BNP and its alliance is a gang of evil force who is trying to foil the upcoming election. The Awami League and the 14-party alliance cannot sit with such an evil force,” the veteran Awami League leader, who is also the health and family welfare minister, said while speaking to reporters after a meeting of the 14-party alliance at the Awami League president's office around 3pm.
He further said the 10th parliament would not be dissolved, but an election-time government would be formed during election.
“This government will help the Election Commission to arrange a fair and all-participatory election," he added.
Claiming that Awami League's popularity was more than sufficient, Nasim said the election would be held as per the constitution, and the Awami League-led 14-party alliance would win the election by a huge margin.
He also said the ruling party and its allies would visit all districts to let people know about the development work done by the government.
The alliance also decided to campaign for the Awami League-nominated candidate in the upcoming Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) by-polls.
The meeting was also attended by Awami League Joint General Secretary Dipu Moni, Organizing Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Office Secretary Abdus Shobhan Golap, Workers Party of Bangladesh President Rashed Khan Menon, JaSaD General Secretary Shirin Akter and other leaders of the Awami League and the 14-party alliance.
