People will start getting the taste of real democracy once their representatives are elected through fair elections, says the Jatiya Party chief
Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Sunday voiced concern that both and the politics and politicians will disappear from Bangladesh if the ongoing “depoliticization” continues.
He alleged: “Whatever is going on in the country in the name of multiparty democracy is not democracy as per the constitution.”
GM Quader made the remark while speaking at a program at his Banani office in Dhaka.
The Jatiya Party chief said the Election Commission must be formed by enacting a law in this regard. “The Election Commission has to be strengthened with ensuring all its powers as per the constitution.”
Also the deputy opposition leader in parliament, GM Quader said free, fair, neutral and acceptable polls will be possible only if all the branches of the government, including the executive one, work under the Election Commission during the election period.
People will start getting the taste of real democracy once their representatives are elected through fair elections, he added.
At the program, some leaders, who have recently been promoted to different posts, greeted GM Quader with bouquets.
Among others, Jatiya Party Presidium members Shahidur Rahman Tepa, Advocate Rezaul Islam Bhuiyan, Advisory Council Member Nazneen Sultana, Organizing Secretary Syed Manzur Hossain Monju and Office Secretary MA Razzak Khan were also present.
