No more caretaker govt to oversee nat’l polls: Agriculture Minister
Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzaque today said there will be no more "caretaker" or polls-time "neutral" government in Bangladesh to oversee national elections.
"As per the constitution, a fair and neutral election will be held in the country through the Election Commission under a government elected by people," he said while speaking at a function to distribute relief materials among Covid-affected people at Madhupur Municipality Auditorium today.
BNP has to get elected by people by joining the national elections if it wants to return to power, the minister also said.
Abdur Razzaque, also an Awami League presidium member, said BNP is scared of participating in the next national election as the party has become detached from people.
"BNP is now making various ill efforts to come to power through the back door without taking part in the election," he alleged.
