Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said BNP’s dream for a ‘2001-like blueprint election’ will never be fulfilled.
Noting that the upcoming national election will be held with the participation of all political parties, he said the Election Commission will be equipped with all mechanism involving all stakeholders to hold a free, fair and acceptable election.
“I hope that BNP will participate in the next election. But, the election must be held in time in accordance with the constitution,” Quader said.
Referring to the recent India visit of some BNP leaders, he said the visit became fruitless as they visited India without any official invitation for lobbying and seeking blessing.
About the development of road communications, the Road Transport and Bridges Minister said the construction of the four-lane Chattogram-Cox’s Bazar Road has been finalised after consultation with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the project is awaiting approval from the Executive Committee of National Economic Council (ECNEC).
