Jatiya Oikyafront Convener Dr Kamal Hossain on Tuesday claimed that the constitution was violated through 'depriving' the country's 16 crore people of their rights in the December-30 election, adding that people will not accept it in any way.
While speaking at a commemorative meeting on Rashid Suhrawardy, son of former Prime Minister of erstwhile Pakistan Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy, organised by his party Gono Forum at the Jatiya Press Club, he also said they will do whatever is needed in this regard, reports UNB.
Rashid Suhrawardy died in London on February 7 last.
Describing democracy as the main principle of the Constitution, Dr Kamal said the country's people had struggled for it. "But people are calling what happened on December 30 a farce and a drama. This can be called cheating with people. It's pity why it was done."
Apparently referring to Prime Minister's comments made on the following of the election that they had come to power for another five years, he said, "We think the country's 16 crore people were disrespected through the assumption of power snatching their rights.
