BNP on Thursday alleged that a level-playing field for the candidates of all parties is not there in the election to Rangpur City Corporation.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said, “The Election Commission is not taking any action against Awami League nominated mayoral candidate in the Rangpur City Corporation polls though he has repeatedly been violating the electoral code of conduct.”
Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, he further said, “We see all candidates are not getting equal scope for carrying out electioneering in the Rangpur polls. The Commission still could not ensure a proper atmosphere for a fair and credible election there.”
“Voters are in fear as the ruling party leaders are trying to establish their supremacy in the polling areas,” he further added.
He demanded the EC to create a healthy atmosphere in Rangpur for a fair balloting.
