Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed said BNP would have to join the general election under the Election Commission (EC) keeping the incumbent government in office.
“No caretaker government would come. BNP has to join the polls under the current government,” he said.
Tofail said those while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion organised by Awami League marking the National Mourning Day at Guli High School in Dhania Union of Bhola Sadar Upazila on Friday.
He also said that BNP would lose its existence if they do not participate in polls this time.
“BNP leaders are realizing that they would not get any positive result by carrying out anarchy across the country,” he added.
Tofail urged the people to cast their votes for the symbol ‘boat’ as there is no alternative to the government under the leadership of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
