Army chief General Aziz Ahmed on Saturday said the election environment in the country ahead of Sunday's national election is very good.
"We haven't seen such a calm and peaceful [voting] atmosphere in 47 years," Aziz Ahmed told the media near Azimpur Government Girls School and College in the city a day before the election.
He said the army was reaching out to minorities and assuring them that they can exercise their franchise without any fear.
"We've seen from previous experiences that those who lose the election attack minorities. We'll be very careful about it," said the army chief.
"At the end of the day," he said, "We want a good election."
