Health Minister and Awami League presidium member Mohammed Nasim on Friday said the BNP has lost its moral rights to seek votes in the next parliament election, reports BSS.
“People will no longer cast their ballots for people who resorted to vandalism and arson in the name of political movement and burnt people to death. So the BNP has no rights to seek votes,” he said.
Nasim, also the spokesperson of 14-party, came up with the observations while addressing separate rallies in Ullapara and Shahjadpur upazilas in Sirajganj on Friday.
Terming the upcoming national election as important as like the one in 1970, the health minister said the people through their ballots will decide whether they would like to see ‘ghosts of Pakistan’ or pro-independence people in power.
Nasim also urged the local leaders and activists of Awami League to remain united and let people know about the development works being carried out by the present government.
Local lawmaker Tanvir Imam, MP, presided over the rally held on Akbar Ali College field in Ullapara, while Shahjadpur Awami League-organized rally on Government College field was presided over by Hasibur Rahman Swapan.
Awami League joint general secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak, organizing secretary Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury, MP and Merina Jahan Kabita addressed the rallies, among others.
