He made the remarks while addressing a rally at the city’s Kazir Deori intersection in the evening.
Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal and Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal jointly organised the rally, which was followed by a procession, demanding the reinstatement of the caretaker government to oversee the next general election and protesting the ban on rallies and processions in the capital.
Noman said conflict is inevitable if the government tries to hold the polls keeping BNP out of it to cling to power.
He, however, warned that BNP will not allow any one-sided polls on the soil of Bangladesh.
The BNP leader also announced to run a ‘Democracy Mancha’ in Chittagong from October 25 onwards to protect democracy.
Urging the government officials to stop harassment of the BNP leaders and activists, he said, “You have to be accountable to people if you don’t exhibit neutral behaviour as the servants of the People’s Republic.”
Claiming that the BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s proposal for the polls-time government was hailed at home and abroad, Noman urged the government to accept the formula to bring political stability in the country.
Addressing on the occasion, BNP chairperson’s adviser Mir Mohammad Naser Uddin urged his party leaders and activists to take mental preparations to stay on streets from October 25.
