BNP frustrated at PM’s address
BNP on Friday claimed that the nation has got frustrated with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s address to the nation as there is no indication for reaching a political understanding over the next general election.
Giving his party’s instant reaction to the PM’s speech, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir also said the Prime Minister’s stance on the election-time government will only deepen the country’s existing political crisis.
“We didn’t find any sign in the Prime Minister’s speech for a political negotiation and resolving the current crisis. It’s a matter of utter frustration,” he said.
The BNP leader further said, “We think there’s nothing in the Prime Minister’s address to resolve the crisis. Rather, it’ll push the country towards another crisis.”
Fakhrul was talking to reports at BNP chairperson Gulshan office after the Prime Minister’s address to the nation.
Earlier, the Prime Minister in her address made it clear that the next general election will be held as per the Constitution, and expressed her high optimism that all the parties registered with the Election Commission will take part in the polls for upholding the country’s democratic process.
Sheikh Hasina said this while addressing the nation marking the completion of her government's four years in office after the January-5, 2014 national election.
