‘Impossible for PM to refrain from influencing polls’: Fakhrul
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday said their party wants to resolve the present political crisis in the country through talks, to avoid any violence ahead of the next parliamentary elections.
“We want a truly neutral election-time supportive government. But we are not rigid on our stance. We want an understanding through discussion. We always hope that good sense will prevail upon the government,” he said.
The BNP leader made the remark while talking to reporters at his Uttara residence in the capital.
Fakhrul said, “We still don’t want to go to the path of violence and we are trying to avoid it. We seriously want the next election to be held in a peaceful atmosphere. We never want the repeat of violence like in the past.”
He said it is important for the ruling party men to hold dialogue if they are truly patriotic, democratic and want wellbeing of the country.
