Dhaka: Awami League presidium member and Public Administration Minister Syed Ashraful Islam has said none will put BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on the throne of power coming from cantonment.
"It'll never happen and it didn't happen anywhere in the world," he said while speaking at a rally organised by Dhaka City North Awami League at Dhanmondi 32 premises in the capital on Thursday.
The rally was organised on the occasion of 'Victory Day for Democracy.'
Syed Ashraf said election is the principal tool to change a government. The change of a government is not approved without the election. Caretaker government and army are not required in any election if democracy is practiced in proper manner.
Terming Khaleda Zia's decision of boycotting the 2014 general election as 'very painful,' he said democratic trend has now created in the country which would strengthen further in future. Good governance remains a far cry without the proper exercise of democracy.
The Public Administration minister said the government has taken various programmes for the development of the country. Women empowerment has taken place. All would have to work unitedly for the development of the people and the country.
Presided over by Dhaka North Awami League president AKM Rahmat Ullah, the rally was also addressed by Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader, presidium members Matia Chowdhury and Sahara Khatun, joint general secretary Jahangir Kabir Nanak and home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, among others.
