BNP will not participate in any election under the Awami League government unless a suitable environment is ensured, says the party leader

BNP will go to the polls if an environment conducive to election is created, said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday.

“We want to say it clearly that it’s not possible to hold a free and fair election under the Awami League government. For this, a neutral election-time government is needed. We’ll join the election if it’s conducted by a new Election Commission under the neutral government. We’ll wage a movement to ensure it,” said Fakhrul. 

He came up with the remarks at a press briefing after visiting the shrine of Hazrat Shahjalal (RA) in Sylhet on Sunday morning.

Fakhrul reiterated that BNP will not participate in any election under the Awami League government unless a suitable environment is ensured.

The BNP leader said: “There’s no election situation in Bangladesh now. An unelected and illegitimate government has been in power for the last two terms by force.”

He also said the government has completely failed to provide security to the people of the country as a whole. “It has failed to ensure the security of Hindu, Buddhist and Christian community and their places of worship. Even majority of  Muslims have no safety in the country.”

After visiting the shrine in Sylhet, Fakhrul went to Sunamganj to attend the mourning ceremony of the former whip and former president of Sunamganj district BNP Fazlul Haque Aspia.
