Polls-time small cabinet to be illogical: Noman

UNB

BNP senior leader Abdullah Al Noman yesterday said the formation of an election-time small cabinet by the current government to oversee the next polls will be illogical and their party will not accept it, reports UNB. “According to the government, the next election will be held under them. We think people have no confidence in the current regime. So, the election can’t be held under it,” he said.

Speaking at a human chain programme, the BNP leader further said, “It's illogical to form a new unilateral small cabinet by the current government. We'll not accept it.”

Bangladesh Sammilita Peshajibi Parishad arranged the programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club demanding BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia's proper treatment and her unconditional release from jail.

Earlier in the day, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Qauder said the polls-time government will be formed in the middle of October.

Talking to journalists at the Secretariat, Obaidul Quader said the size of the government will be like the one formed last time and there will be no technocrat in it.

Noman, a BNP vice chairman, said their party together with people will force the government to accept their demands, including formation of a non-political neutral election-time administration with a strong movement.

He warned that the government will not be able to suppress vigorous and united street movement with repressive acts and using the administration like other 'autocratic' regimes. “Ayub Khan, Yahya Khan and Ershad also failed to survive and finally got defeated.” Criticising the government for what he said not releasing their ailing chairperson Khaleda from jail, the BNP leader urged his party colleagues to get ready for freeing her by ensuring the fall of the regime through a strong movement.

“The case was filed against Khaleda Zia with a political motive. So, we'll have to face it politically,” he observed.

Noman said though their chairperson is seriously ill, the government is not providing her with proper treatment. “We're very concerned over her health condition. We call upon the government to ensure her treatment in a specialised hospital.”

The BNP leader said the government should free Khaleda immediately so that she can play a role in overcoming the political stalemate ahead of the national election.
