Sheikh Hasina , the Leader of the Opposition in Bangladesh has urged upon the ruling four party alliance to accept at least five major demands out of twenty-nine demands which the opposition alliance has put forward to bring in reforms in the electoral process and the caretaker system in Bangladesh.
In an exclusive interview with VOA Bangla Service, the Awami League Chief focused on the ongoing political dialogue between the government and the opposition and reiterated the opposition alliance’s demands for an electoral reform to ensure free and fair election in Bangladesh. Sheikh Hasina categorically mentioned that accepting K M Hasan, as the Head of the Caretaker Government would itself be unconstitutional because K M Hasan is a partisan person.
When asked whether the future of democracy would be in danger if the opposition begins an all out movement against the Caretaker Government led by K M Hasan , Hasina said one should also think about future of democracy in Bangladesh if election is held under a partisan government with votes being rigged.
Hasina hoped that if elected to power through a free, fair and peaceful election her party would fight Islamic militants, ensure uninterrupted power supply and reduce the prices of daily commodities.
