Participation of individual party in next polls matters nothing: Nasim

DHAKA- Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim said today it is not a matter at all who will take part or not in the next general elections to be held in due time under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in line with the constitution.

"It matters nothing which party will take part or not in the next general election," said Nasim without mentioning the name of any party at a discussion in the city.

Homeopathy teachers and doctors organized the discussion at the auditorium of Institute of Engineers with Chairman of Homeopathy Board Chairman Dr. Dilip Roy in the chair.

Among others, Dhaka South City Awami League General Secretary Shahe Alam Murad spoke on the occasion.

In veiled reference to BNP, Nasim, also a presidium member of the ruling Awami League said, "We will not pay heed to any request over the next general election. The polls will be held in due time under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in accordance with the constitution."

He also said, "Those, who did not take part in the (last) election and killed people by carrying out arson attacks, are now talking about democracy. The word democracy doesn't suit in the mouth of the killers."

The minister called upon all to build a greater united resistance against the spurious medicines to stop the selling of those medicines.
