Dhaka: Claiming that no sane person can hold a ‘so-called’ election like that of the December 30, Jatiya Oikyafront Convener Dr Kamal Hossain on Thursday called for a national dialogue to find ways for arranging the polls as per the constitution.
‘National dialogue is a good way…. let’s sit (for dialogue) without creating any crisis. Let’s take the decision through this dialogue how to form an elected government and a parliament holding the election as per the constitution,’ he said, reports the UNB.
Dr Kamal, also Gano Forum president, further said, ‘A sane person cannot play such a game staged with the country’s 17 crore people on December 30. This can’t be done unless one is mentally imbalanced.’
He was addressing a discussion organised by his party at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU) marking the Homecoming Day of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The Jatiya Oikyafront chief also claimed that they had to see a ‘farce’ on December 30 in the name of an election, saying, ‘It won’t bring any legality and stability. This can in no way be accepted. It’s not right legally and constitutionally.’
