Neither road nor map in EC’s roadmap: Maudud


PV Desk : BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Saturday alleged that the main motive behind the Election Commission’s roadmap for the next polls is to take Awami League to power again through lopsided polls.

Speaking at a discussion, he also said the current political crisis over the 11th parliamentary polls will have to be resolved through an understanding among political parties by holding talks.

“There’s neither any road nor any map in the proposed roadmap of the Election Commission to restore people’s voting right. The Commission has taken an initiative to restore one-party rule and bring Awami League to power again,” the BNP leader said.

Jatiyatabadi Projonmo 71 arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club to press home its demand for holding the next polls under an election-time supportive government.

Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said the EC roadmap also has no direction to ensure a level-playing field and equal scope for all parties. “They didn’t use the word level-playing field in their roadmap at all.”

He said their party wants to participate in a fair and inclusive election where all parties will be treated equally and given equal scope.
