President of JASOD and information minister Hasanul Haq Inu said the parliamentary elections would be held as per the constitution.
‘Despite ensuring level playing field for the elections, a vested quarter is hatching conspiracies from behind the screen. There is no need to search for 11 angels in the name of a neutral government. That opportunity will not be given to them,’ Inu said.
The minister was addressing an election rally of JASOD arranged to drum up support for its probable candidate from the 14-party alliance for Rangpur-2 constituency Kumaresh Roy on Shahpur grounds in Badarganj upazila town on Thursday evening as the chief guest.
Inu said the vested quarter was hatching conspiracies to bring a ‘ghost government’ to power to destroy the constitutional process in the country.
Pointing at the Jatiya Oikya Front leaders, Inu suggested them to stop bargaining about the release of Begum Khaleda Zia, Tarique Rahman and razakars in the name of dialogue while leaving the main agenda of development.
‘If the Oikya Front wants development, it should stand beside Sheikh Hasina. There is no alternative to Sheikh Hasina for continuation of the overall development process in the country,’ Inu said.
Inu said Sheikh Hasina had established the rule of law after winning the elections in 2008 and conducted the trial of killers of the nation’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by removing the culture of indemnity from the country.
He called upon people to remain alert and elect the pro-liberation government led by Sheikh Hasina for continuation of peace and development.
He sought vote of the common people for probable candidate from the 14-party alliance and JASOD leader Kumaresh Roy from the Rangpur-2 seat.
Presided over by local JASOD leaders Abdur Rahman, Kumaresh Roy, advisor of JASOD central committee Ekramul Hossain Swapan, its joint general secretaries Shakhawat Hossain Ranga, Naymul Ahsan Jewell and Obaidur Rahman Chunnu, general secretary of Badarganj upazila unit of the JASOD Anwarul Haque, its local leader Abdur Razzaque, among others, addressed the rally.
