BNP Standing Committee member Barrister Moudud Ahmed on Saturday alleged that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was trying to mislead the countrymen, as there is no provision of election-time government in the Constitution.
"The Prime Minister in her address stated that a poll-time government will be formed for the next general elections. However, such mechanism is absent in the Constitution. By referring to it she tried to mislead the people," he told a discussion meeting.
Moudud said the Prime Minister tried to make her stand clear that the national polls will be held under the ruling Awami League.
He also said it was clear from the address of Sheikh Hasina that she did not change her stance of rejecting the possibility of consensus with BNP.
The BNP leader said he felt frustrated as the Prime Minister did not say anything about dissolving the parliament and deploying Army in the upcoming parliamentary polls.
The programme was organised by Democratic Movement, a pro-BNP organisation, demanding withdrawal of cases filed against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and its senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman.
