The EC stated this is because there are only two days left till the general polls

Party chiefs and representatives of political parties will not be allowed to address the general public, via BTV, before the upcoming general polls.

Election Commission Joint Secretary (public relations) SM Asaduzzaman made this remark while talking to the Dhaka Tribune.

“No directives have been issued about this,” he said.

“Previously, a proposal was submitted to the commission in this regard. However, the commission did not approve it,” he added.

He said: “There are a lot of registered political parties in the country. It is not possible for everyone's speeches to air as there are only two days left till the 11th parliamentary election. Thus the commission has not approved this proposal.”
