BNP chairperson's adviser Brig Gen (retd) Hannan Shah yesterday blamed the Election Commission (EC) for the current deadlock in holding dialogue with BNP by taking a controversial decision on its invitation letter.
"This complex situation would not have been created had the Election Commission sent the invitation letter to BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain timely," he told reporters at his Mohakhali residence.
Hannan Shah hoped that the EC would invite Khaleda Zia-appointed Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain for dialogue as he said the BNP across the country is united under her leadership.
The BNP leader said, "We believe the election is a means to hand over power. We saw in the past that election under any blueprint was never acceptable."
On BNP's unity, Hannan Shah said: "The ball is now in the court of reformists. Unity is possible if they respect chairperson's instructions."
Earlier, Hannan Shah had a meeting with BNP leaders Nazrul Islam Khan, Selima Rahman, Goyeswar Roy and Mohammad Shajahan.
