Jatiya Oikyafront Convever Dr Kamal Hossain today said no development is meaningful if people’s right is not established in the country, reports The Daily Star. Dr Kamal, also president of Gonoforum, a component of Oikyafront, said this at a press briefing held at the alliance’s Purana Paltan office in Dhaka this afternoon. He expressed hope that if the government and the Election Commission hatch any blueprint for the national election, then people of the country will foil it. Calling upon the countrymen to go to the polling stations and cast votes, Dr Kamal said, “Through casting votes to your desired candidates, ensure your (people) ownership of the country and restore its democracy”. “The EC has to take full responsibility if it fails to hold a free, fair and credible election on December 30 and the countrymen will compel it to answer for its failure,” he said. “The EC must ensure a peaceful atmosphere for holding a free and fair election,” the Oikyafront key leader said.
About the role of law enforcers ahead of the election, he said, “Their behaviour is not acceptable”.
He alleged that police along with the ruling party men have been putting bar on the opposition candidates during their electioneering.
