Awami League Publicity and Publications Affairs Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday said they were disappointed after seeing BNP’s helplessness.
He said, “We want BNP to be united. We want BNP to take part in the national upcoming election.”
The Awami League leader made the remarks while addressing a discussion as the chief guest at Shilpakala Academy in the capital.
He also said Awami League did not want to split BNP, rather it wanted BNP’s participation in the next general election.
Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote organised the programme, marking the 156th birth anniversary of Biswakabi Rabindranath Tagore.
“BNP has called its leaders and activists to stage rallies across the country to organise the party.
But their leaders and workers were locked into a clash. They also threw chairs at each other in a rally.” the minister said.
Mahmud said: “Today we are disappointed seeing the helpless condition of BNP. They are pleading through foreigners to hold talks with Awami League.”
Awami League agreed to hold dialogue, but it would not sit with any terrorist group and war criminals, he said.
Mahmud said people could not be fanatic, if practice of religion and culture went on together.
