Dr Kamal Hossain, Gono Forum president and one of the top leaders of Jatiya Oikya Front, has said the harassment and arrests of political leaders by the government using various issues is unacceptable.

The veteran jurist made the remark in a press statement released by his political party Gono Forum on Tuesday. 

Dr Kamal also said: “We have formed Jatiya Oikya Front to ensure that all political parties that believe in the spirit of the Liberation War can take part in the upcoming election in a constitutionally sound manner, which is in line with the prime minister’s ideas.
