Former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia's BNP
–led four party alliance in Bangladesh, has accused its principal rival
party Awami League of having an entente with the present caretaker government. The
BNP secretary general said that Awami
League is doing 'contradictory'
activities and striking an 'entente' with the government. He claimed that this
government came to power through Awami League's blessings.
The alliance, by and large , has
refused to participate in the local election saying that this would give a
legitimacy to the government. BNP favors a national election before the local election.
However, they have still remained undecided because they have been asking the
government to fulfill some of their demands.
