The opposition 14-party Alliance led by Sheikh Hasina’s Awami League has been refusing to sit in a dialogue with the any members of the Islamic fundamentalist parties included to represent the ruling alliance.
They allege that these parties have opposed the freedom –movement of Bangladesh in 1971 and some of them are behind the Islamic militancy in Bangladesh.
The ruling alliance have, however, included the names of some of those members as proposed discussants who the opposition refuse to sit with. However the ruling BNP’s general secretary says that they are still hopeful about the dialogue.
The opposition will be sending a formal letter to the ruling coalition refusing to join in the dialogue unless the names of the members of Jamat-e-Islami and others were removed from the discussant group.
