Food Minister Qamrul Islam on Monday said split in BNP is only a matter of time.
“Unity of BNP will not be long-lasting as the disagreement among central leaders of the party has already begun centering amendment of its constitution,” he said.
Qamrul came up with the remarks at a discussion organised by Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote at National Press Club in the capital. Adviser of the organisation Chitta Ranjan Das chaired the programme.
“BNP top leaders are aggrieved as a corrupt and convicted person has been made acting chairperson of the party and they are thinking about alternative,” he said.
The food minister ruled out any possibility of ruling party’s involvement in the splitting process of BNP.
“We have no intention to split BNP, but its top leaders are enough to split it as they will not allow any convicted person as their chief,” he said.
Qamrul said the ruling party has no intention to keep BNP chief Khaleda Zia away from the election.
“We want an inclusive election in participation with all political parties of the country,” he added..
