Fair and neutral elections will be held with no involvement from a caretaker government says the Agriculture Minister
Agriculture Minister Mohammad Abdur Razzaque on Saturday said no caretaker government would be formed in the country in violation of the constitution.
"There will be fair and neutral elections in the country through the Election Commission as per the constitution and no election would be held under any caretaker government," he said.
Razzaque, also an Awami League presidium member said this while speaking as the chief guest at a function to distribute relief as a gift from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina among the people affected by Covid-19 at Madhupur Municipality Auditorium in Tangail on Saturday morning, said a press release.
"BNP is now an isolated party and afraid to participate in the election... They are trying to come to power by hatching a conspiracy without participating in the elections" he said.
"But if they want to come to power, they have to participate in the polls and get the people's mandate," he added.
The minister said the way Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina stood by the poor, helpless and distressed people during the pandemic and provided food aid was unprecedented in the world.
