Fakhrul said they formed a 21-member election steering committee for the two city corporations each

BNP has formed two committees -- headed by party Standing Committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain and Moudud Ahmed -- to carry out electioneering and other activities in support of its candidates in the elections to two Dhaka city corporations.

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir came up with the announcement at a press conference after a meeting of the party Standing Committee members at its chairperson's Gulshan office on Saturday night, reports UNB.

He said they formed a 21-member election steering committee for the two city corporations each.

The BNP leader said Mosharraf was made convener of party's Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) election steering committee while party Standing Committee members Mirza Abbas and Iqbal Hasan Mahmud Tuku will act as its coordinators.

Fakhrul said Moudud was made convener of the party's Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) election steering committee. BNP Standing Committee members Gayeshwar Chandra Roy and Selima Rahman were made its coordinators.

Besides, he said, they will send letters to the Election Commission, the inspector general of police (IGP) and the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner seeking their cooperation in holding fair and credible elections in the two cities on January 30.

The BNP leader said their meeting discussed the issue of the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) in the polls. 

"We have rejected EVMs and we will not accept the voting through the EVMs."

He said they will work out action programs to mobilize public opinions against the EVM use in the elections.

As BNP is a democratic party, he said, it is participating in the city polls under an "incompetent" Election Commission.
