Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)- Main opposition BNP has decided to join the next Jatiya Sangsad (National Parliament) session, Moudud Ahmed, a BNP standing committee member, said on Friday.
 “We’ll surely join parliament for the sake of the country’s welfare and its people and in our own interest, but it’ll depend on the ruling party’s attitude how many days we’ll be there in the House,’’ he said.
Mr. Ahmed came up with the disclosure while addressing a rally of youths at the National Press Club in the capital Dhaka on Friday.
He alleged that the ruling Awami League has made parliament dysfunctional during their last four and half years’ rule eliminating the scope to speak for people in the House.
The new session of parliament will begin on June 3 where Finance Minister AMA Muhith will place his last budget on June 6, as the current regime is going to complete its tenure at the year-end.
