Contacted over joining of Awami League leaders and activists to BNP, Tangail District BNP general secretary Farhad Iqbal said the Awami League leaders and workers at the grassroots level are not evaluated properly, because the ruling party does not bother about the 'politics of vote' anymore. Because of it, there is no democracy in the country, and they have also become frustrated. So, they have joined the BNP leaving Awami League, he said.
