Polls can’t be questioned, says Quader

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Polls can’t be questioned, 
says Quader

Awami League general secretary, Obaidul Quader, said yesterday (Saturday) that questions cannot be raised about the December 30 general election, as the polls were free, fair and peaceful.  “For the first time, many democratic countries greeted Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina before she formed the government. So raising questions about the polls is illogical and unrealistic,” he said while talking to reporters after inspecting a drive of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority at Manik Mia Avenue in the city.

 On Friday, dubbing the election a "farce", some left leaders demanded that fresh polls be held. In reply to the left leaders’ statement, Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said the opposition is raising questions about the polls as they faced a humiliating defeat. They are trying to boost the morale of their leaders and workers, he added.

 Referring to the Oikyafront’s call to hold a national dialogue on the 11th parliamentary elections, the AL general secretary said there is no need to hold such talks as the people of the country, as well as foreigners, have not raised questions about the elections.

 “Sitting for talks with the opposition on the December 30 polls is ridiculous. It’s absolutely an unrealistic demand of the BNP,” he said.

 Replying to a question about the Awami League’s next national council session, the AL general secretary said: “The next council of our party will be held in due time. There is no chance to hold a snap council session before the deadline in October.”

 The minister said the Road Transport Act will be in effect from now on. They are now ready to implement the much talked-about law.
