The 10th parliamentary election will take place on time even if main opposition BNP does not participate in the polls, new Land and Disaster Management Minister Amir Hossain Amu said today.

“The acceptability of polls depends on the turnout of the people, not on which party participates in the polls or not,” the minister said on the first day of his office at the Secretariat.

His comments came on the back of rigid stance from BNP-led 18-party opposition combine to boycott the election if it is held without a non-partisan caretaker government.

The opposition has also threatened to paralyse the country the moment a schedule for the general polls is published.
