'BNP will not take part in upcoming UP elections'

BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday said, In the upcoming elections to Union Parishad (UP), the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) will not take part.

Mirza Fakhrul Islam said this while talking at a press conference at BNP Chairperson’s political office at Gulshan in the capital this afternoon.

No fair election is held under this incumbent Election Commission (EC). As a result, a decision was taken at a meeting of the standing committee of the party (BNP) on Saturday afternoon, said Mirza Fakhrul. 

He said, “We will no longer take part in UP elections as a party under this Government and Commission.”  

On the other hand, blaming the police for the clash between JCD and police at the National Press Club, Mirza Fakhrul said the incident was done deliberately by police.
