Awami League joint general secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak on Monday said that the remarks of Election Commissioner Mohammad Abdul Mobarak about BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia are based on reality.
"Though he is in a constitutional post, he is not alienated from the state. He made the remarks based on realistic circumstances. They are not only his remarks, but also the remarks of the whole country," he said.
He said this while addressing a press conference held at AL president's political office at Dhanmondi in the city.
On Sunday Election Commissioner Mohammad Abdul Mobarak said Khaleda Zia is rubbing her nose in dirt by participating in the upazila parishad polls.
Claiming that the government is successful to hold the local government polls in free, fair and neutral manner, Nanak said anarchy reigned in many places for violent mentality of BNP-Jamaat despite Election Commission’s proper steps.
The Awami League leader urged the BNP leaders to shun the path of violence and lying for the interest of country's peace, security, development and stability.
Awami League leader Ahmed Hossain, office secretary Abdus Sobhan, among others, were present at the press conference.
