Only option for BNP to join polls: Quader
Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said that BNP will have to take part in the next parliamentary elections to come out of the quicksand of blunder.
"We hope the party won't repeat the mistake it made by boycotting the January 5 election," he told reporters after inaugurating a footbridge in Padua on Dhaka-Chittagong highway in Comilla on Thursday.
Noting that the participation in the election is its democratic right, Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said: "Why will the government call the opposition parties to polls? Taking part in the election is their right." source – UNB
