Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Wednesday said BNP always looks for secret ways, instead of elections, to go to power.

“I would like to ask a question to BNP - what do they mean by the voting environment? Or, do they want the guarantee of victory in advance and is that the voting environment for Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir?” he said.

The information minister came up with the observation while talking to newsmen after addressing a function at Officers Club here.

Earlier, the minister addressed a function on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of 'Business Bangladesh' and the first publication of the Daily Bangladesh Update.

He said voting is taking place fairly as fair election environment prevails in Bangladesh. For this, BNP has won in many polls, he added.

The minister said BNP fears to take part in the local government elections as they have become an isolated party.

In fact, those parties boycott the elections which become isolated from people. And it will be a suicidal decision for any political party which does politics for the masses," said Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary.

He said the statements of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir are nothing new.

In fact, they want a system in which BNP would go to power, but the countrymen would never accept this, he added.
