Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League Joint General Secretary Hasan Mahmud said that BNP is afraid of their election because they know their popularity status. Because of this, they are walking on the path of conspiracy instead of the path of the election. The minister addressed the closing ceremony of the seminar on ‘Road Safety Reporting’ organized by the National Media Institute (NIMC) at the Kakrail Information Building conference hall on Monday afternoon. Then he said this in response to a question from journalists. In answer to a question regarding BNP Secretary General’s comment ‘BNP will not fall into the election trap’, the information minister said that BNP is actually scared of elections. It is natural to be apprehensive because, in 2008, BNP won only 29 seats out of 300 in the elections led by Khaleda Zia. Later in the by-elections, they managed to cross 30 seats. In 2014 they boycotted the elections. And in the election of 2018, all parties united Dr. By ‘hiring’ people like Kamal Hossain Saheb and participating in the elections, they got only 7 seats including female seats. They know about their popularity, they know how successful they can be in the election, and that’s why they are afraid of the election. As a result, they are walking on the path of conspiracy. Hasan Mahmud said, “We want BNP to overcome the fear of elections and participate in the elections. As elections are held in other democratic countries, here also the government during the election will be the current government and the election will be held under the Election Commission. The government party Awami League will participate there and all the political parties including BNP will participate, this is our expectation.”Before the seminar on road safety, the information minister said that a road accident not only cripples or kills a person but also kills and cripples the whole family. gives Stopping it requires a concerted effort and coordinated initiative of all, including vehicle owners, drivers, workers, and law enforcement. At the same time, the televisions have to promote awareness through advertisements on their own initiative. There are so many talks shows about politics, there should be talk shows about road safety, and there should be good reporting.
