This year’s 11th parliamentary elections will be remain unprecedented for many reasons. For example, from the buying of nomination paper and submissions, In the number of cancellations, now all records of the past are breaked. This is the first time to prepare come to election many parties. It is a matter of fact, the reason why this festival is so festive and enthusiastic! Obaidul Quader said, BNP breaks record in nomination tradein this year. Rumour has it that BNP is doing nomination trade, and it has hit a record high,” he said. Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said this at a press briefing at the party president Sheikh Hasina’s political office at Dhanmondi in the capital on Tuesday. Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said this at a press briefing at the party president Sheikh Hasina’s political office at Dhanmondi in the capital on Tuesday. The AL general secretary said amid cancellation of a good number of BNP candidates due to loan default issues, 555 are still vying for the national poll. “Isn’t it a large chunk?” he posed a question.
Centering the general poll which will be held on December 30, a total of 3056 nomination forms were submitted, of which 786 were revoked. Replying to a question, Quader said the nomination forms of some 278 from AL and 555 from BNP were declared valid. “Which party candidates are valid in terms of number? But only 300 candidates nominated by the contending parties will vie for the poll. Why 555?” he questioned. Now we want to say, why during the BNP regime, why did Bangladesh become the top corrupt for five times in a while? That is, the political party that is corrupt, how can the country become corrupt? What is the ghost organization inside the organization that they will work to chase away from the country? Now what will the ACC decide about them? Can the group that is corrupt due to monetary trade be eligible to participate in the elections? Because, if a registered party can corrupt like trade, corruption can not be free from the country.
So, we want to be free from corruption, so that this purification campaign is done within the party. Only then will they be able to go to power and be honest to chase corruption from the country. Otherwise it is not. Because, in that case, it is not possible for them to be sincere about removing corruption. It will only be confined to the mouth ‘booli’ like monkeys.
