Advisory Council member and Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed said the law enforcing agencies will take stringent measures if BNP tries to create anarchy in the name of movement in the country.
"They (BNP-led combine) created all sorts of anarchy to thwart the parliament polls of January 5 but they could not foil the national election. The polls will be held after five years and BNP should take part in the elections under the present government," he said.
Tofail Ahmed said this while speaking as the chief guest at the triennial conference of Mohammadpur and Adabor Thana Awami League (AL) at the Shaheed Park ground of Mohammadpur Town Hall in the city.
The senior Awami League leader said, "The present government assumed power for a five-year term and the parliament polls will be held after five years under the ruling government. Polls will never be held under the caretaker administration in the country."
Mohammadpur Thana AL president Sadek Khan chaired the conference which was attended by AL joint general secretary Advocate Jahangir Kabir Nanak as the special guest.
Dhaka City AL acting president MA Aziz gave the inaugural speech while general secretary and Relief and Disaster Management Minister Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya (Bir Bikram) attended the conference as the main speaker.
Mohammadpur Thana AL general secretary Habibur Rahman Mizan conducted the conference, also attended, among others, by Dhaka City AL vice-president Sheikh Bazlur Rahman, organising secretary Shahe Alam Murad and publicity secretary Abdul Huq Sabuj.
Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya said the BNP could neither come to power nor it is in the opposition as it did not take part in the parliament polls of January 5 and the party (BNP) would loose all if it opted for any unusual thing in the next election.
Jahangir Kabir Nanak said, "The state can't be run under a non-farsighted leader. BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia showed her lack of farsightedness by not taking part in the parliament polls and participating in the upazila elections."
As leaders and workers of different ward of the two thana units of AL converged at the venue in small marches beating up drums and chanting full throated slogans, a festive mood prevailed at the venue of the conference, which virtually turned into a huge public rally.
