BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed said the party’s delegation led by Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam went to the UN Headquarters at the invitation of its Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
“Our secretary general did not go to the UN on his own, rather he went there at the invitation of the UN Secretary General,” said the BNP leader while speaking at a discussion at the Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka.
Moudud said the delegation went there to present the real situation of the country, not to complain.
Moudud, a standing committee member of BNP, said the UN Secretary General invited their party leaders to its headquarters as he could not manage time to meet them during his recent visit to Bangladesh.
He also alleged that there is no atmosphere for credible election in the country, though only three months are left for arranging the next general election.
Moudud, a former law minister, observed that the government has become worried as the UN Secretary General invited the BNP leaders to New York.
