BNP always ready for national polls: Fakhrul

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today said his party is always ready to participate in the next general election if an election-time supportive government and congenial atmosphere are available.

“BNP has 900 prospective candidates in the 300 constituencies,” Fakhrul told reporters after placing wreaths at the grave of late president Ziaur Rahman in Dhaka’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar.

Flanked by the party’s leaders and activists, Fakhrul went there to mark the 28th anniversary of Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dal.

Asked whether BNP has started the work for selecting its prospective candidates for the next general election, Fakhrul said, BNP is an election oriented party as it believes in election.

“BNP is always ready to participate in the election if an election time supportive administration and election atmosphere is ensured,” he added.

Fakhrul said the government has shrunken the space for democracy as it could understand that they have been isolated from people.

“The government is trying to establish one-party rule in the country. A fair and free election in the country will prove that people are not with Awami League,” he added.
