DHAKA: Ruling Awami League joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif Wednesday called upon the opposition parties including BNP to accept Prime Minister’s proposal of interim government for the sake the country and democracy.
The AL leader came up with the urge while addressing at a pre mourning rally meeting organized by Jatiya Sramik League in front of the party office at Bangabandhu Avenue.
