Bhola, Mar 13 (UNB) - Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed on Tuesday said the dream for a polls-time supportive government will never be fulfilled as the next general election will be held under the current government as per the constitution.

He came up with the remarks while addressing a rally organised by local Awami League at Ratanpur High School ground.

“The next general election will be held under the present government, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The interim government will do their daily work while the Election Commission will conduct the election. The next election will be held in a neutral and free manner,” Tofail said.

If anyone remains away from election, the government will have nothing to do, he said.

About the river erosion in Bhola, the minister said the government has taken steps for stopping the river erosion and a project involving Tk 2,000 crore is underway.
