“PM-led incumbent govt will be in office during polls”

Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud said that the current government would act as the election-time government and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will perform as its premier.

The minister said this while addressing reporters after attending a seminar organized by the Department of Oceanography marking the world oceans day at Senate Bhaban of Dhaka University on Thursday (June 8).

He said, "BNP's caretaker government demand didn't get any international support. For this, they are now talking about 'neutral government' instead of caretaker government. The present government will perform as the election-time government like in other democratic countries".

Criticising the BNP's comments over the electricity issue, Hasan said the BNP leaders, including Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, become vocal on power issue but they didn't provide power to the people, rather they had torched the power office, he added.

He said BNP gave only 'khamba' (electric polls). On the other hand, the AL government gives electricity to the countrymen and the habits of the people have changed. The scenario of the country has changed as cent percent people came under power facilities, he added.
