Dhaka [Bangladesh], Dec.3 (ANI): Ruling out the possibility of holding talks with Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) over the formation of a new election commission, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that no talks can be held with a 'killer'. "BNP men have killed people by setting fire in line with the directives of the party chief Khaleda Zia," the Daily Star quoted Hasina, as saying. Hasina was addressing a press conference at her Gono Bhaban residence in Dhaka. She reminded BNP about its action over the formation of Election Commission when it was in power. Stating that her party will accept whatever is decided by the president over the constitution of a new election commission, Hasina without naming any one said, "She has given her proposal. She should go to the president. I will accept the decision whatever will be taken by the president." Earlier, she said that a "technical catastrophe" had led to the emergency landing of the Biman flight carrying her at Turkmenistan airport on November 27. Bangladesh Prime Minister at the invitation of Hungarian President Janos Áder had gone to Budapest on a four-day tour from November 27. Four memoranda of understanding (MoUs) were signed by the two sides during Hasina's visit. (ANI)
