City dwellers cast vote safely: DMP

DHAKA, Dec 30, 2018 (BSS) – Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md
Asaduzzaman Mia said city dwellers are casting their voting franchise in
favour of their candidates of choice in festive, peaceful and safe manner.

“We have inspected the overall security arrangement at over 100 polling
centres across the capital. City dwellers are casting their votes
spontaneously for candidates of their choice without any fear in a peaceful
environment,” he said after visiting Tejgaon Government College in the city.

“No problem has been taken place anywhere in the capital city. Talking to
agent and polling agents of candidates of different political party we have
come to know people are returning to their homes safely after casting their
votes,” he also said.

“We have taken ‘zero tolerance policy’ against breaching of any code of
conduct with taking comprehensive and foolproof security measures at each of
the polling centres with deployment of appropriate numbers of law enforcers,”
he added.

“A security blanket has been put over the capital as no evil force can
hamper election environment by giving threat. Necessary security has been
given to voters, candidates and their agents as they can exercise their
voting rights,” he further added.

High officials of police accompanied the DMP commissioner.
