Commerce minister Tofail Ahmed on Saturday said that the Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s proposal for election-time supportive government was not realistic as there is no existence of such provision in constitution of any country across the globe.
‘There is no constitution in the world having provision of supportive government. So, the proposal of BNP to this end is not realistic,’ he said while addressing a function as the chief guest marking inauguration of a new building of Charfassion Upazila Pasishad.
‘BNP has no option without taking part in the next general election as they took lessons from their wrongdoings of not participating in the last general polls,’ he said.
‘The next election will be held under the ruling Awami League government as per the constitution and the election commission will hold the polls,’ he said.
Inaugurating the Charfassion Upazila Parishad building, local government, rural development and cooperative minister Khander Mosharraf Hossain said, ‘The AL government has done a huge development works in Bhola for welfare of people, not for getting vote.’
Referring to remarks of BNP leaders that AL will not get 50 seats in the next general election, he also said, ‘BNP will not get 30 seats in the next election due to the huge development works done by the AL government.’
Charfassion Upazila AL president Joynal Abedin Akon presided over the function. Among others, deputy minister of forest and environment ministry lawmaker Abdulla Al Islam Jacob, and lawmaker Habibe Millat Munna, spoke on the occasion.
