The BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami have adopted lies and violence as voters have rejected them in the election, says the Awami League. "The BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami alliance realised their defeat is confirmed and are therefore choosing terror and violence. At least five leaders and activists of the Awami League have been killed on the eve of the election in attacks by the BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami," said Jahangir Kabir Nanak, joint general secretary of the Awami League, in a press briefing on Sunday. Earlier, Kamal Hossain, chief of the Jatiya Oikya Front, expressed concern over the state of the election throughout the country after he cast his vote at 9am on Sunday.
"Every minute, I receive calls saying 'Kamal Bhai, it has already happened overnight. It began in the evening. I have gotten so many reports," he said. "These reports are concerning. It's sad and shameful."
It is a dishonour to the martyrs of 1971 and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to grab polling centres and preventing the voters from vote, said the Gono Forum president.
"How can a veteran leader like Dr Kamal Hossain speak such lies? He said there are no BNP agents. It is obvious for the BNP not to have agents as their members have lost the nominations at least in seven seats following the High Court verdict," said Awami League Joint General Secretary Nanak.
