14-party alliance to form poll campaign teams

DHAKA, Nov 17, 2018 (BSS) – Awami League (AL) Presidium Member and 14-party alliance spokesperson Mohammed Nasim today said the alliance will form joint teams to conduct campaigns across the country ahead of the 11th parliamentary elections.

“We will form joint teams for conducting election campaigns in different constituencies by organizing meetings and rallies to encourage the people to vote for the alliance’s candidates,” he said, after coming out from a meeting of central 14-party alliance at AL’s central office in the city’s Bangabandhu Avenue.

Gano Azadi League president SK Shikder presided over the meeting.

Bijoymancha (victory stage) will be set up at all upazilas and districts across the country on December 16, Nasim, also health and family welfare minister said, adding on the stages songs will be rendered and dramas staged on the country’s Liberation War.

Mentioning that, BNP and Jamaat are afraid of the month of victory (December), he said, adding: “Oikyafront demanded deferment of the parliamentary polls. They do not want election in December, the month of victory. They become afraid when December comes”.

Attack on police in front of BNP central office in the city’s Nayapaltan is a sorrowful matter, Nasim said, adding BNP’s character has not changed yet.

“It was a pre-planned attack. They (BNP) were ready with sticks for carrying out the attack. But they are now spreading falsehood over the incident,” the AL leader said.
