Awami League presidium member Mohammad Nasim on Tuesday said they appreciate the foreigners’ concern about Bangladesh, but Awami League would not accept their dictates.
“We appreciate that our foreign friends are interested about us. They want peace and stability in the country. We can take their advice as well as cooperation, but we won’t obey their dictates,” he said.
Nasim, also a former Home Minister, said this while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at Shikha Chirantan to pay tributes to the Liberation War martyrs.
Mentioning that the election will be held in time as per the constitution, Nasim said Awami League would not bow down to any pressure.
“National and international conspiracies are going on over the Jan-5 polls, but no conspiracy will work in this regard,” he added.
Workers Party of Bangladesh president Rashed Khan Menon, Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal general secretary Sharif Nurul Ambia were, among others, present.
