Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh on Wednesday said India hoped that the forthcoming elections will strengthen democratic institutions, practices and processes in Bangladesh, while asserting that violence has no part in a democratic process
"We hope that the forthcoming elections will respond to the aspirations of people in Bangladesh and that they will be free, fair, impartial and peaceful and find wide acceptability. Democracy also means the ability to resolve differences through dialogues and peaceful means, without recourse to violence," she told media here today.
"I think all right thinking people will appreciate the fact that violence has no part in a democratic process. You cannot use violent means to achieve your ends," she added.
She reiterated India's concern regarding the ongoing violence in Bangladesh, and said that violence impacts most on the vulnerable sections of the society, which is not in anyone's interest.
Bangladesh, where general elections are scheduled to take place in January next year, has been witnessing street violence over the last five weeks.
The nation's opposition party, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), led by Khaleda Zia, has said that it will boycott the general elections over the issue of not forming a neutral interim government. (ANI)
