PV Desk : BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Saturday said the unity of opposition political parties with a one-point demand for a credible election is a must to put an end to the current ‘despotic rule’, and ‘restore’ democracy and people’s voting rights.
“We want to get rid of the current authoritarian rule. Establishing a government with people’s vote is the only way to do so. We must forge a national unity for the restoration of democracy and people’s voting rights,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader further said, “All the democratic parties and those of us involve with politics, will have to get united with a one-point demand for holding the next election in a fair and neutral manner. Waging a united movement is the only way to realise the demand.”
Adarsha Nagorik Andolan, a pro-BNP platform, arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club.
Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said political parties must make united efforts to mount pressure on the government as it is neither willing to reach a compromise nor quit power. “There may be a misunderstanding and disagreement among us. Let’s agree on a matter to bring democratic practice back.”
After forging a national unity, he said political parties can sign a deal pledging to strengthen democratic practice and democratic institutions and parliament.
