He has demanded an investigation into the matter

Jatiya Oikya Front chief Dr Kamal Hossain has said many of their polling agents have been expelled from voting centres.  

He made the statement when asked by reporters if Oikya Front had agents in all centres; after he cast his vote with his wife at Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, on Dhaka’s Baily Road, on Sunday morning.

The senior politician said while their agents were present at the Viqarunnisa centre, those in many other centers had been expelled from the premises. 

“We will demand an investigation into this matter,” he said.

“We are getting phone calls every minute. Voting began yesterday evening and was completed by last night. This is very sad and shameful. We have to take legal steps against this,” the Gono Forum President said. 

“The overall situation is worrisome. This is a sheer betrayal of the nation, and a betrayal of Bangabandhu and the martyrs,” the veteran jurist told journalists.
