Tarique had a meeting in London with BNP leaders where he said that if BNP wins the next elections, he would become the Prime Minister of Bangladesh no matter what his mother or other leaders think. He also cautioned the civil society, naming some names like Mahfuz Anam and Motiur Rahman for not supporting him fully in the past.

He said that he would first take care of civil society and then the BNP leaders that did not support him. He also said that the leaders that will get nomination from now on including Dhaka Mayor, will be his candidates. He said he is in full control of BNP and is getting ready to wipe out everyone that is not on his side.
