BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said that Awami League will not get more than 30 seats if there is any free and fair polls are held.

He commented this on Friday afternoon at a press conference at BNP Chairperson’s Gulshan office.

He said, “As part of the movement, we came to the polls. But the election commission (EC) could not create the election environment till now.”

“It is very clear, the Election Commission is not accepting any initiative for an acceptable, fair and free election. They are implementing the blue design of the government,” Fakhrul alleged.

Party secretary general said to Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader, “Maximum time, he talks irrelevant topics.”

“What is the benefit of talking so much? With a fair election, see how many seats they win? As I said earlier, I am still saying that if the fair elections, Awami League will not get more than 30 seats.”

To the government, Mirza Fakhrul said, “Stop arresting our party leaders. Otherwise, the government and the Election Commission must be taken the responsibility. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said no arrests would be made since the announcement of the schedule, but her words could not be seen.”
