PM Hasina asks BNP to join polls

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said BNP should join the next polls and should not repeat the mistake as it did by boycotting the 2014 election.

"I want to ask her (Khaleda) and her party to come to the right path of healthy politics. They (BNP) shouldn't repeat their mistake as they did in the 2014 general election. People will cast their votes for those whoever they like," Hasina said.

The Prime Minister said this while she was addressing a community reception accorded to her at the City Conference Center in Sweden on Thursday evening, reports UNB.

She said Awami League wants the democratic trend continues in the country. "They (BNP) should stay away from the path of killings. We're moving ahead as Bangladesh now reached a respected position in global arena."

Hasina also came down heavily on Nobel Laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus for his 'role' in stopping the World Bank fund for Padma Bridge project, bringing allegations of corruption against her, instigating Hillary Clinton to phone her after losing his MD post of Grameen Bank and giving threat to her son Sajeeb Wazed Joy thrice by the State Department.

The Prime Minister also mentioned that she had fruitful discussions with the King and the Prime Minister of Sweden.

She urged the expatriate Bangladeshis to project the ongoing development activities in Bangladesh.

Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali also spoke at the reception chaired by president of Swedish unit of Awami League.
