“Awami League is the oldest traditional party in Bangladesh. We welcome their council session and wish its all-out success,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
“We also hope that they (AL) will play their due role in restoration of democracy through this council. Not only the BNP but also the country people expect such a role from the Awami League leadership.” He also added.
