Trinamool BNP secretary general Taimur Alam Khondker has said they will form the next government through election after forming a stronger alliance.

"If we can‍‍`t do it, we will become the main opposition party in parliament. Many parties are making contacts with us," he told reporters while addressing a press conference at the party‍‍`s central office at Meherba Plaza on Topkhana Road in the capital on Sunday (November 19).

Taimur Alam Khondker said, "We have been receiving unprecedented response in distributing nomination forms. Former members of parliament, mayors, present upazila chairmen and leadfers of different political parties are colelcting Trinamool BNP‍‍`s nomination forms. They think that Trinamool BNP will get massive response from people and do better in the election."

Trinamool BNP chairperson Shamsher Mobin Chowdhury bought the party‍‍`s nomination form on Sunday to contest at Sylhet-6 constituency in the upcoming 12th Jatiya Sangsad elections.

In response to a question, he said, "We often hear about the concern of a section of the international quarter which is known as the Western world. In one hand, they support genocide and talk about democracy on the other. Beyond it, the larger section of the international quarter think that election is the internal issue of Bangladesh. People will take decision on Bangladesh‍‍`s participation in the world politics and economy."

Trinamool BNP, a newly registered political party with the Election Commission, started selling nomination forms from Saturday (November 18) to participate in the upcoming general election. The party has sold a total of 60 nomination forms till 12 noon on the second day, on Sunday. Selling of the party‍‍`s nomination forms will continue until Monday.

Interview of the party‍‍`s nomination aspirants will begin on 10:00am on November 21, said the party‍‍`s vice-chairperson and media wing chief Salam Mahmud.
