Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said the BNP has made another mistake as the party’s leaders did not take oath as parliament members on Thursday.
“BNP made a mistake in 2014 by boycotting the general election. Yesterday, they made another mistake by taking the decision not to take oath as members of the parliament,” said the AL leader while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mijubur Rahman in front of Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmandi-32 on Friday morning.
Asked about Oikyafront’s memorandum submission to the Election Commission demanding fresh elections, Quader said, ” They’re doing what the defeated opposition parties do…this is a common post-election scenario; there’s nothing new. This will stop after a few days.”
The ruling party general secretary also claimed that the country’s people have voted Awami League spontaneously.
BNP’s decision of not taking oath as MPs is a ‘disrespect’ to the verdict of the country’s people, he added.
