Update Time: 21 Jan 2018 12:40 pm:
BNP General Secretary Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir says the government does not want to discuss the upcoming parliamentary elections with the opposition parties because it’s afraid to lose the elections.
The BNP leader made the remarks in response to questions from the media following an event at the party’s headquarters in Dhaka’s Naya Paltan on Saturday.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, dismissing the possibility of discussing the election-time government with the BNP, said the period would be supervised by a small, interim government as it had been in the previous elections.
“There must be an impartial government during the election. We do not want an Awami League government. We do not want a Sheikh Hasina government,” Alamgir said.
“The government is ignoring these calls because they know if the elections were held under an impartial government, they would never win<” he further added.
When asked about BNP’s outline for an election-time government, Alamgir said, “We will present an outline of a supportive election-time government to the people when the time is right.”
