Senior Reporter: Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General-Secretary Obaidul Quader has again rejected the Oikya Front's demand for fresh polls.

Quader said this while talking to media after inspecting the activities of a mobile court on Manik Mia Avenue in the city on Saturday.

He said there is no scope for dialogue with the opposition parties who are demanding for a fresh election under a nonpartisan caretaker government.

“Democratic countries have extended their support to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina before the formation of the new government. So, there is no need for holding any such dialogue,” Quader told reporters.

Earlier, claiming the December 30 election to be “farcical”, Jatiya Oikyafront Convener Dr Kamal Hossain called for a national dialogue to find out ways for holding a fresh election as per the constitution.
