BNP,Jatiya Oikyafront out to make general election questionable: 14-party


DHAKA, Nov 23, 2018 (BSS) – The 14-party alliance led by Awami League (AL)
today urged the Election Commission (EC) to take necessary steps against BNP
and Jatiya Oikyafront’s attempts to make general election questionable.

Leaders of the 14-party alliance made the call when a 12-member delegation
led by Samyabadi Dal General Secretary Dilip Barua met the EC.

After the meeting, Dilip Barua termed BNP and Jatiya Oikyafront’s role over
the ensuing election as double standard and mischievous. He went on saying
that BNP and Jatiya Oikyafront y are taking preparations to participate in
the election side by side grumbling with baseless and false complaints to
destroy peaceful and festive atmosphere of the election.

He said, “BNP is making comments violating electoral code of conduct….
But Jatiya Oikyafront leader Dr Kamal Hossain is silent though he is an
eminent jurist.”

The demands placed by BNP are politically motivated, Dilip Barua said
adding BNP wants to make the parliamentary polls questionable.

BNP and Jatiya Oikyafront are conspiring to create unstable situation
during the election for implementing their secret agenda, the leaders of the
14-party alliance said.

Demand of BNP regarding reshuffles of officials in civil administration
and officials concerned, the leaders of the 14-party alliance said it is the
authority of the Election Commission for reshuffling of officials for sake of
holding a free, fair and peaceful election.

Other members of the delegation including AL Organizing Secretary Khalid
Mahmud Chowdhury, Jatiya Party General Secretary Sheikh Shahidul Islam and
leader of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JASAD) Nader Chowdhury, joined the
