No foreign pressure for caretaker govt: Obaidul Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today (May 7) said there is no foreign pressure for restoring the caretaker government system in Bangladesh.

He said: "European Union, the USA, the UK or no other friendly country put pressure on Bangladesh over caretaker government system. Any country didn't interfere in internal matters of Bangladesh."

Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, was talking to journalists after a board meeting of Bridge Authority at Setu Bhaban in the capital's Banani area.

He said BNP wants a caretaker government that can assure the party of getting elected in polls.

Caretaker government made biased behavior in 2001 and 2006, he said, adding: "We don't want to bring a dead issue like caretaker government to life."

The AL general secretary said unnatural caretaker government stayed in power for two years but it was supposed to stay for three months.

"The caretaker government carried out attacks on our leaders and workers. The people don't want such a caretaker government," he said.

The minister said today's Election Commission is independent and neutral. "What's the problem of BNP joining polls under this Election Commission? This commission is making all-out efforts to hold a neutral election," he said.

Finally, he said the elections will be held under the Election Commission as per the constitution.
