BNP to join JS polls if level-playing field ensured: Fakhrul

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today said his party will participate in the next general election if level-playing field is ensured for all parties.

“Prior to the elections, level-playing field must be ensured under a neutral government,” he said while addressing BNP’s Thakurgaon unit council, reports our local correspondent.

He also called upon his party men to be united for restoring democracy and people’s rights in the country.

Fakhul also came down heavily on the government as the party did not get permission for holding rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka protesting Saturday’s police raid at BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s Gulshan office.

Meanwhile, Toimur Rahman and Mirza Faisal Amin were elected as new president and general secretary respectively of BNP’s Thakurgaon district unit.
