Alleging that the ruling party is attacking BNP candidates and its supporters physically to force them to quit the city election race

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has alleged that the ruling Awami League is conspiring to hamper their party’s victory in the elections to two Dhaka city corporations.

“As Awami League has become politically bankrupt, it is now conspiring to thwart BNP’s victory in Dhaka city corporations’ polls in various ways,” he said.

Fakhrul made the remarks while talking to reporters after offering fateha at the grave of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s younger son Arafat Rahman Koko at Banani graveyard, marking his fifth death anniversary on Friday, reports UNB.

Alleging that the ruling party is attacking BNP candidates and its supporters physically to force them to quit the city election race, Fakrul said: “They are hatching various plots to keep us away from the elections.”

The BNP leader said no one will be able to prevent the victory of their mayoral candidates, Tabith Awal and Ishraque Hossain, as there has been a mass wave in favour of the "sheaf of paddy," their party’s election symbol.

Fakhrul claimed Arafat Rahman Koko met a premature death because of political reasons though he was not involved in politics. 

“He had been subjected to both physical and psychological repressions out of political vengeance (of the government)."

BNP senior leaders and its two mayoral candidates, Tabith and Ishraque, were also present.

Later, the two BNP candidates offered fateha and prayed for the eternal peace at the grave of Annisul Huq, the late mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC), at the Banani graveyard.

Annisul was elected DNCC mayor with Awami League’s ticket in April 2015 defeating Tabith Awal. BNP had boycotted that election halfway through.
