Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam said yesterday in response to queries by reporters at Tungipara, Gopalganj.
“In the last programme, I said we want election and want to participate in the election. That election should be held under a neutral government. It is clear. But some newspapers has misinterpreted it. Our position did not change. We said clearly that people will not get the chance to cast votes under [Sheikh] Hasina. So election should be held under a neutral government and BNP will participate in that election"
