None expected BNP attack on police: Tofail
DHAKA, Nov 15, 2018 (BSS) – Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed today said BNP had failed to resist the parliamentary election in 2014 through killings and arson attacks.
“BNP again attacked policemen on duty and torched vehicles in front of party office, and no one expected it from them,” he said.
The minister was addressing the inauguration ceremony of international exposition on textile, garment machinery and accessories as chief guest at International Convention City Basundhara, organized by Redcarpet365, said a ministry release.
Mentioning that law enforcement agencies are now under control of the Election Commission, Tofail said: “We are doing routine work in the ministry without exercising any executive power.”
“Further rescheduling of election would not be a right decision, as everything is moving ahead towards holding a free, fair and participatory election in the country,” he said.
