Law, justice and parliamentary affairs minister Anisul Huq on Thursday said that the elected members of parliament of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party-led Jatiya Oikya Front should join the parliament.
‘BNP has enough time to join the parliament after taking oath. Otherwise, people will see what consequences await them,’ he told journalists at Akhaura in Brahmanbaria before attending a reception at Kasba of his constituency.
He added, ‘I think BNP will be guided by good sense and they will join the house.’
About the recent report published by Transparency International Bangladesh on the last general election, the law minister said: ‘I’ve not read the report yet. I will make comment on it after I read it.’
In response to another question, Anisul said that work began to confiscate the assets of war criminals’ family members last year and it would now be finalised.
Akhaura municipality mayor Taqjil Khalifa Kajal, upazila nirbahi officer Mohammad Shamuzzaman, upazila Awami League convener Mohammad Joynal Abedin, municipality unit president of Juba League Monir Khan, its general secretary Abu Kawsar Bhuiyan and AL leader Rashedul Kawsar Bhuiyan were, among others, present.
In the afternoon, Anisul joined a reception programme.
