BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday said his party will not participate in the upcoming Union Parishad (UP) elections.
He came up with this announcement at a press conference at BNP Chairperson’s political office at Gulshan in the capital this afternoon.
No election was fairly held under this incumbent Election Commission (EC). As a result, a decision was taken at a meeting of the standing committee of the party (BNP) on Saturday afternoon, said Fakhrul.
He said: “We will no longer take part in UP elections as a party under this Government and Commission.”
Blaming police for the clash between JCD and police at the National Press Club, Mirza Fakhrul said the incident was done deliberately by police. "People organize programmes in front of the Press Club all the time and no permission is needed for that," the BNP leader added.
