Jatiya Oikyafront chief Dr Kamal Hossain on Saturday urged the Election Commission and election officials, including returning officers and assistant returning officers, to ensure the environment so that people can exercise their franchise in Sunday’s election.
`Returning officers, assistant returning officers and others involved in the election activities are respected persons. If you discharge your duties properly, it’ll increase your dignity.
The success of your duties will be determined by the smile on the faces of voters,’ he said.
Addressing a press conference at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU), Dr Kamal further said, `If you snatch anyone’s right, remember that someone else is taking away the right of your father, mother, wife and children. If you do this, people, history and the law won’t forgive you.’
He urged people to go to polling centres across the country in the morning to cast their votes.
`I urge the respected voters, please go to polling stations in the morning and cast your votes. Don’t get scared. If you go (to voting centres), miscreants will flee… they can’t overpower people’s strength,’ he said.
