Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday reiterated that BNP and Jamaat are trying to foil the parliamentary elections scheduled for January 7.

“The consequences will not be good if anyone tries to foil the election,” she warned, adding that the people are the strength of her party.

Sheikh Hasina, also the president of ruling Awami League, was delivering her introductory speech at Awami League’s Parliamentary Nomination Board meeting held at its Dhaka district office at Tejgaon to finalize the party’s candidates for the 12th parliamentary elections.

She said that the BNP- Jamaat alliance did not participate in the 2014 elections as they had no confidence about their win.

Sheikh Hasina also said that although BNP-Jamaat tried to malign the 2018 elections, they failed to show any specific evidence of irregularities to support their claim.

She said that Awami League wants democracy to prevail in the country and the political parties will continue their activities freely.

“But while BNP was in power Awami League did not get that scope. Some 21000 leaders and activists of Awami League were killed across the country during their regime,” added the premier.
