BNP chairperson's adviser Hannan Shah on Tuesday squarely blamed the Election Commission for creating confusion over EC-BNP dialogue to hold back polls and demanded immediate resolution of the issue.

Hannan Shah made the accusation when he went to appear before the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate in an extortion case against him.

The outspoken BNP leader said, 'The Election Commission can hold election much earlier should it have that willingness. And the sooner the election held, the better the countrymen will be benefited.'

He demanded release of all the political detainees, including the two former premiers — BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and Awami League president Sheikh Hasina.

Hannan Shah hailed Monday's speeches given by Awami League leaders concerning the complications created over the withheld dialogue between BNP and the Election Commission on electoral reforms ahead of the polls.

True to the dictum that politics sometimes creates strange bedfellows, district Awami League president and Gazipur municipal chairman AKM Mozammel Haq accompanied the leader of their rival party all the time after Hannan Shah reached the court in the morning.

Denouncing government attitude towards Hannan Shah, who has been arrested and released on bail thrice in the interim period, the AL leader said, ''The government is behaving unfairly with him (Hannan).'
