Hasina turns Down opposition Demand on Front Row Seat in the Parliament


Replying to a question from Fazlul Azim, an independent lawmaker from Noakhali-6, on the seating arrangement, t prime minister Sheikh Hasina rejected the BNP’s demand for more front-row seats.
She said the opposition had been given more seats than they were supposed to get and the ruling AL got fewer front seats. The AL is supposed to get 23, but actually it has only 19 seats in the front row, she pointed out.
‘We have got fewer front-row seats than we are supposed to. We have shown generosity to honour other parties,’ claimed the prime minister, adding that the BNP got less than 30 seats so it should get three seats.
‘Do they have the right to demand that we do what they have not done?’ asked Hasina, referring to the BNP’s demand for at least seven front-row seats. She criticised the BNP for boycotting parliament just because of the seating arrangement.
She referred to the eighth parliament, saying the AL was given six front-row seats in spite of having 60 MPs.
