Accusing the ruling party of “hijacking” people's voting rights, Gano Forum President and Jatiya Oikyafront leader Dr Kamal Hossain yesterday warned that those involved in it would not be spared.
"Not only a farce in the name of election took place but also a grand robbery of the vote took place across the county. No one said the election was held in a fair manner," he said.
Dr Kamal further said those involved in such activities were not truly elected. "People's voting rights have been hijacked after hijacking of the state. I want to warn them no one will be spared."
He came up with the remarks while exchanging views with the party leaders and activists who worked in favour of the Oikyafront candidate for Dhaka-6 in the December-30 polls at the party's central office in Dhaka's Arambagh.
Those who rigged votes in the national election, in fact, disrespected Bangabandhu and his colleagues who sacrificed their lives for the country's independence.
Dr Kamal urged the country's people to get united and raise their voice against the national election "forgery".
He also accused the ruling party men of plundering thousands of crores of public money.
"We've seen many autocrats but no one of them could survive. People repeatedly taught the autocrats and exploiters," he said.
Dr Kamal urged the ruling party men to refrain from plundering public wealth and quit power immediately.
He also alleged that the people of an independent country were left in a helpless condition.
"This is absolutely temporary. People are getting organised," he added.
