Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed said the upcoming parliamentary election will be free and fair with the participation of all political parties.
He made the remarks while addressing a programme as a chief guest in the capital today.
The commerce minister said: "BNP and Awami League both parties raised questions on the caretaker government earlier as it was not above controversy. No caretaker government will be formed to organise the upcoming parliament election."
"The Election Commission will have the authority to work independently during the poll-time government tenure," he added.
