Drawing the attention of the BNP leaders, Awami League general secretary and road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said that there was no scope of changing government without holding elections.
‘People’s mandate and holding elections are the only way to change any particular regime of the government,’ he said, addressing a press conference at his office in the secretariat.
Criticizing Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir for frequently demanding resignation of the government, the ruling party leader asked the BNP leaders why the government would resign and who would accept the resignation.
Quader said, ‘The government has been elected for a certain tenure and the next elections will be held in the scheduled time. BNP must return to positive politics, if they [BNP] want to change the government. Otherwise, it will be useless to create chaos for materializing the goal of changing government,’ he added.
Referring BNP’s demand of bringing back the caretaker government, the ruling party general secretary said the caretaker government is a settled issue and nothing will be achieved by repeatedly raising the issue.
‘Ruling Awami League is always confident that people are with them for its development and achievements. So, BNP’s dream to capture power in an undemocratic way will come to an end soon,’ said Quader.
