BNP senior leader Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury on Friday warned that the country will face a big catastrophe if the next election is not held in a fair and credible manner.
"There's no alternative to returning the ownership of the country to its people through a representative government. The country will move towards a big disaster if people can't exercise their right to franchise and their verdict is not reflected in the results of the next polls," he said.
The BNP leader came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion at the Jatiya Press Club arranged by Youth Forum in memory of ex-President Abdur Rahman Biswas who died on November 3.
Khasru, a BNP standing committee member, urged Awami League to come to the path of democracy for the welfare of the country and its people.
He also called upon the ruling party to take proper steps to ensure the participation of all parties in the next polls by creating a level-playing field.
