Chandpur: Foreign Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Saturday said all political parties including BNP are taking preparations to take part in the next national elections.
“Though they (BNP) are smearing campaign to form vote-centre-wise Sangram Committee, these rhetoric will be of no use, as all parties are being prepared for participating in polls,” she told reporters after exchanging views with Imams.
The Foreign Minister also said the BNP are forming Sangram Committees for taking part in the polls.
On the post-Oct 24 outlook, she said Awami League had decided to hold a rally on October 25 rally before BNP. “It’s unfortunate that BNP has chosen the day for their rally. It means they want confrontation and clashes.”
Dipu Moni urged the opposition BNP to step back from their decision of holding the rally on the same day.
“BNP had come to power through back door (in the past). This scope doesn’t exist now. Now, exchange of power can only take place through democratic process,” she added.
Earlier, Dipu Moni inaugurated various development projects. Local AL leaders were also present.
