PV Desk : Castigating BNP leaders for their imprudent comments on upcoming two city corporations’ polls in Dhaka, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said BNP’s efforts to make the polls questionable are not accepted.

“BNP is out to make the city polls debatable and questionable which is totally unacceptable. They always participate in the polls for making it controversial and creating confusion among the people,” he told reporters after attending a programme at Channel i in city’s Tejgaon.

The minister said, “I think they (BNP) should participate in the election with the aim to win the race instead of making it questionable.”

About the arrest of one BNP councilor candidate, Hasan, also joint general secretary of Awami League, said “The law enforcement agencies can arrest anyone, if there are cases or warrant against any candidate of BNP or Awami League or other parties”.
