BNP Standing Committee member Barrister Moudud Ahmed on Friday said the opposition is going to join the upcoming budget session of parliament.
“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.
Moudud came up with the disclosure while addressing a rally of youths at the National Press Club.
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.
Most opposition MPs are likely to lose their memberships in this session as they abstained from Parliament for 82 consecutive days.
According to the rules of procedure, an MP cannot refrain from attending parliament sessions for more than 90 days in a row.
