BNP claimed the vote rigging by the ruling party got exposed nakedly in the ongoing three city corporation elections.
“We have been talking about the government’s blueprint over the elections in the three cities since the beginning of the electioneering, and it has got exposed nakedly today,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi while speaking at a press conference at the party’s Nayapaltan central office on Monday.
Bringing various allegations of irregularities, including driving out of its polling agents and stuffing ballot boxes the BNP spokesperson said, “The Election Commission’s inaction has encouraged the ruling party men for indulging in the irregularities.”
He said though the elections are being held amid various irregularities, the EC will come up with false statements after the voting to appease the government.
“The Election Commission has now become a parasite by giving up its power and authority. We think the Commission itself is now an opponent of fair polls,” Rizvi added.
The BNP leader also said there will be no fair and credible election in the country as long as Awami League remains power.
