Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud today said no conspiracy could foil the election and it would be held on time.

"Various conspiracies are being hatched regarding the upcoming election. Attempts to disrupt the election and form a 'Hamid Karzai'-type government by manipulating the election will never succeed in this country," said the minister.

"In 2014, there was a conspiracy regarding the election, and it was said the government would not survive. Our government ran the country for a full five-year term. In 2018, there was also a conspiracy, and once again, we are completing five years," he said.

"No matter how much the BNP and Jamaat conspire to hand the country over to the world's villains, the election will take place on time. Whether the BNP comes or not, along with the Supreme Party and many other political parties and the participation of the people a fair and impartial election will be held," the minister said.
