The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday alleged that Awami League is trying to have BNP in the next national election scaring it about losing its registration with the Election commission, reports news agency UNB.
"A deep-rooted conspiracy is on to force BNP to join the election. It's mandatory to join polls as per the law, but the law was enacted for people. The law is meaningless if it doesn't ensure people's welfare and their civic rights," said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
He came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Bangladesh Student Forum and Northern Regional Student Forum at Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking BNP senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman's imprisonment day. Fakhrul said their party wants a democratic governing system and a democratic government, not just an election.
"We can't call the 2014 election an election at all. In the same style, Awami League is now trying to score in the next polls by resorting to the ploy and deceiving people. But, it won't be so easy."
Mentioning that there is no democracy in the country, he alleged that Awami League talks about democracy to fool people though it does not believe in it.
