Information and Broadcasting Minister and Awami League Joint General Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud on Friday said BNP's dream of restoring caretaker government system in the country will never be successful, reports BSS.

"If BNP makes any evil efforts to create disorder in the name of movement (over caretaker government), Awami League, along with the people, will give them a befitting reply," he said.

Hasan was talking to journalists before joining, as the chief guest, the 11th biennial council of Bangladesh Entomological Society at Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC) at city's Khamarbari, said a press release.

He said the next parliamentary elections will be held under the Election Commission (EC) and the incumbent government will act as polls-time government as like as all democratic countries in the world.

In the context of BNP's demand for caretaker government, the minister said serving government doesn't step down and any other government doesn't assume office before national elections in all democratic countries like India, Japan, Australia, Europe and even in the USA.

In that way, elections will be held in Bangladesh and the incumbent government will discharge duties of running the country during polls, he mentioned.

He said in 2014, BNP had tried to resist the polls but they couldn't do so rather the journey of democracy continued.

In 2018, they again talked in the same manner and later they joined polls in alliance with different parties but won only five parliamentary seats, he said, adding that an empty vessel sounds much.

He urged BNP to take preparations for the next elections without making meaningless comments.
