Issuing a note of warning to the government, BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed Friday said the country would be paralysed by strikes and blockades if the next elections are held under a partisan government.
"We will wage tough movements after Eid with the demand for holding the next general election under a non-partisan government. The movement will be at its peak from September to October 25 and programmes will be announced for mass upsurge," he said.
Moudud made the threats while addressing a discussion at the National Press Club in the city.
"We want to undoubtedly say to the government that if it wants to hold elections under its arrangement, the country will be paralysed through agitation, including blockades and non-stop hartals. None will leave the street till the demand is met."
