Power handover this time as per Constt: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said the handover of power this time will be held under uninterrupted democratic system as per the Constitution.“The democracy will run uninterruptedly and the power handover this time will be held under uninterrupted democratic system as per the Constitution,” she said in her introductory speech at a views- exchange meeting with the grassroots leaders of Awami League from Shariatpur district at her official residence Ganobhaban.
Awami League leaders — Kazi Jafar Ullah Chowdhury, Satish Chandra Roy, Deputy Speaker Shawkat Ali, PM’s Adviser Dr Alauddin Ahmed, Office Secretary Advocate Mannan Khan, BM Mozammel MP and Enamul Huq Shamim — were present on the dais during the meeting.
Hasina, also the Awami League President, categorically said that the next election of the country will follow the system followed by the countries of the world practicing parliamentary democracy.
She mentioned that the democratic system of the country time and again faced obstacles – sometimes in the name of coup and sometimes through conspiracies.
“This time the power will be handed over through uninterrupted democratic system in constitutional manner. The process should start from a point and this is the time. It’ll help the democracy to run uninterruptedly,” she said.
The Prime Minister said that this time the election will be free, neutral and fair, and the constitutional process will be followed for uninterrupted democratic process.
About the submission of adjournment motion by the opposition BNP in Parliament and its subsequent withdrawal, she said BNP had done this as they do not want to hold dialogue.
She mentioned that at first, BNP thought the ruling party will not accept the adjournment motion for discussion, but they accepted it in the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) meeting of Parliament.
“After that we heard the BNP withdraw their adjournment motion,” Hasina said.
The government wanted to hold the dialogue, but the opposition party does not want that, she said. “By the withdrawal of the adjournment motion, BNP showed to the whole nation that they don’t want the dialogue,” she added. (Source: UNB)
