Politicians want unconditional dialogues with the government to create an environment conducive to holding the national elections at the earliest.
They said they wanted a complete withdrawal of ban on political activities and the state of emergency to resolve political and economic problems of the country.
The acting Awami League president, Zillur Rahman, said on Sunday referring to the statement of the chief adviser, Fakhruddin Ahmed, on holding dialogues with political parties and withdrawal of the state of emergency said that the prime task of the interim government is to hold the parliamentary elections within the shortest possible time and holding dialogues is the only way to create a congenial atmosphere for national elections…. the government must not tag any condition to holding talks.
Zillur gave a warning that the Awami League would not participate in dialogues if the government tags conditions.
Nazrul Islam Khan, a joint secretary general of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, believes tagging conditions would deteriorate the relationship between the government and the political parties.
