Senior Correspondent: BNP senior leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain has urged the government to take lessons from India’s recent Lok Sabha elections.

He said, “People in India could cast their ballots in favour of the party of their choice in the Lok Sabha elections. I would like to urge the Bangladesh government to take lessons from it.

Mosharraf came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Jatiyatabadi Nagorik Dal at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the 38th death anniversary of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman.

The BNP leader congratulated Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the second consecutive election victory of his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“I greet Indian people as they could exercise their right to franchise. I also greet Modi as he could hold a fair election staying in power,” he added.

Mentioning that the government used to talk about many positive things of India as references, he urged the government to get inspired from the Lok Sabha polls to hold such unquestionable elections in Bangladesh.
