The ruling Awami League today announced a series of programmes to be held from September 23 to October 4, following BNP's announcement of a 15-day programme yesterday
As the BNP plans to intensify its movement for polls under a non-partisan administration, the Awami League and law enforcement agencies are determined to keep the capital under their control.
The Election Commission and Awami League seem to have started taking preparations for the coming national election.
While the ruling Awami League is already gearing up for the election, opposition BNP is concentrating its efforts on forcing the government to accept the demand for polls under a non-partisan interim administration.
Around 90 of the Awami League lawmakers -- about a third of the 261 AL MPs -- may not get nomination in the next general election for their misdeeds and growing unpopularity, party sources said.
With the elections just four months away, there are hardly any campaigns.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday called upon all opposition parties to take to the streets to force the Awami League government to quit and hold the next polls under a non-party government
