‘They are doing it to avoid defeat’

Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahabubul Alam Hanif has said BNP is lying about the harassment of their polling agents.

In his immediate reaction to the election on Monday he said: “The polling is going on in festive surroundings, except for some isolated incidents; there is no evidence of unpleasant situation anywhere.”

Hanif, speaking from the Dhanmondi Awami League office, said: “To make the election questionable, BNP is making false claims and they are doing it to avoid defeat.”

He also asked the party to provide specific evidence about their agents being thrown out of polling centres.

He added Awami League agents were evicted from two polling centres in Barisal.
