Nothing will be done outside the constitution during the national elections, said Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque said yesterday.
He made the remark during a discussion programme commemorating Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's 48th death anniversary. The event was organised by Bangladesh Bharat Maitri Samiti organised at National Museum in the capital.
The government has made it clear that nothing related to the election will be done outside the constitution. This constitution was forged in the blood of 3 million martyrs. Not only the election but also people's futures will be shaped according to the constitution, he said.

He also urged foreign countries to hand over the self-confessed killers of Bangabandhu, showing respect for Bangladesh's laws.
Present as special guest, Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Pranay Verma highlighted Bangabandhu's contributions to the liberation and building of this nation.
