Govt will help EC for holding fair polls: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said the Election Commission (EC) is committed to holding free and fair voting. The government will extend all possible assistance to the EC in ensuring fair voting.

He came up with the comments while speaking to reporters at his residence on Saturday.

Obaidul Quader said the Election Commission is a constitutional body and the government has no interference in this body. Those who introduced multi-party jokes and opportunists in the name of multi-party democracy, those who do not have the practice of democracy within the party, today they talk about democracy.

Pointing out to BNP secretary general, he said, "Why didn't you go to the parliament even though you were elected? What kinds of democracy it is? You were playing tricks on the right to vote. Who made farce of the 'Yes-No' vote? Who was elected the president from the post of army chief? Who did the voterless election on February 15? Who wanted to deprive people of their rights by creating 1 crore 27 lakh fake voters? I hope the BNP secretary general will answer all these questions."

The Awami League general secretary said, just like elections are held in other democracies of the world, elections will be held in Bangladesh as per the constitution in time. He urged the BNP leaders not to heat up the field unnecessarily.
