BNP does politics just for going to power but not for people, he says

Referring to BNP's objection to the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) in the upcoming elections to the two Dhaka city corporations, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said they want an analogue Bangladesh, not a digital one.

"EVM is a recognized modern and digital system which allows quick vote casting and count. But, BNP is against the use of EVMs in the Dhaka city corporation elections," he said while distributing warm clothes among cold-hit people at Saidpur Railway Officers' Colony ground in Nilphamari on Saturday.

Claiming that all the elections held under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government were neutral, Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said BNP raises allegations of vote rigging even before the election and they lose before the vote is cast, reports UNB.

"BNP does politics just for going to power but not for people. They have not stood by those who are suffering from cold," he added.

The ruling party leader said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina does politics for the development of the country and its people, not for power.

Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi, State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Md Enamur Rahman, Awami League Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, and its Relief and Social Welfare Affairs Secretary Sujit Roy Nandi were, among others, present.
