The party's joint secretary-general claims the ballots of more than 150 constituencies were pre-marked for 'The Boat'
BNP has alleged that candidates and polling agents—in all 250 constituencies they are contesting for—have faced harassment, and in many cases, physical assault.
BNP also claimed that the police did not cooperate with them.
BNP Joint Secretary-General Moazzem Hossain Alal, on behalf of BNP, submitted a letter signed by Standing Committee member Nazrul Islam Khan—in this regard—to the chief election commissioner on Sunday afternoon.
In the letter, there are allegations that with the help of law enforcement agencies and other authorities concerned, the ballots of more than 150 constituencies were pre-marked for the boat symbol, on Saturday night.
Voters were intimidated into voting for certain candidates, the complaint continued, adding that besides being kicked out of polling centres, many polling agents have also been arrested.
The complaint further read that many Oikya Front and BNP candidates were not allowed to set up election camps near polling centres.
BNP Joint Secretary-General Moazzem Hossain Alal, talking to the media after submitting the complaint to the Election Commission, said: "Polling agents have been kicked out, in 221 constituencies. We have already said before that there cant be a fair and free election under a partisan government."
All of these just proves that, he alleged.
