Rizvi: Young voters will lead the way to a fair election
Hossen Sohel of DOT : BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has said the young voters of the country will play a crucial role in making the upcoming general polls fair and acceptable, reports The Daily Star.
He made this statement during a press meet at BNP’s Naya Paltan headquarters yesterday.
Rizvi said: “Young voters will be the pioneers of a fair election in the upcoming 11th parliamentary polls. They will overcome all obstacles and ensure their attendance in voting centers.
“Awami League’s Election Steering Committee Co-Chairman HT Imam provided a list to the chief election commissioner, regarding the acceptance of candidacies, after nomination submissions. This was then sent to the district returning officers. They made their decisions according to the list,” he said.
“Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda, with his unjust activities, is acting like an Awami League leader,” he added.
Rizvi furthered: “We believe not all police officers are corrupt and are working for the government. There are still good police officials out there who will perform their duties accordingly—with a neutral take on the proceedings. We are hopeful that police will not stand against the general people of Bangladesh.”
The senior BNP leader also demanded the immediate release of all arrested BNP leaders and activists.
On November 12, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda announced a fresh schedule for the parliamentary election.
The commission said the polls will now be held on December 30 instead of December 23.
