Leave Jamaat, come to peaceful discussion, PM tells KhaledaNew Age Online
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Monday urged upon Khaleda Zia to join a peaceful dialogue after quitting the paths of terrorism and violence, giving up relations with war criminals and terror organization Jamaat-e-Islam.
‘We can resolve (problems) through discussion about the next election,’ she said during a press briefing at her residence of Ganabhaban in the city.
The PM reiterated that she was ready to discuss with the opposition BNP if the party quitted the company of Jamaat-e-Islam.
In her post-election briefing that was held at the front yard of Ganabhaban this afternoon, she said Jamaat is a terrorist organization and that they keep on killing general people.
She insisted that the election was held peacefully and that she does not believe anyone can raise any question about the election.
She told the journalists, foreign and Bangladeshi, that BNP and Jamaat had tried their best to thwart the polls, but failed.
The Awami League president said the people did not respond to BNP-Jamaat’s call and came to polling center by ignoring general strike, blockade and violence.
