Vote rigging would not take place at night in the upcoming upazila election, it would be done in broad daylight, said Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon, whose party is a component of the ruling Awami League-led grand alliance.
“Many chairman candidates are now winning the election without any vote. Such an election will not bring any good result for the country,” he said while addressing a reception at Barishal city's Rajanigandha Community Centre yesterday.
About the last general election, Menon said his party candidate for Barishal-3 was nominated by alliance leader and AL President Sheikh Hasina.
But AL supporters did not vote for the Workers Party candidate who contested the polls with the AL's electoral symbol "boat", Menon added.
He said his party would take part in the upazila election and asked its activists to guard polling centres.
Barishal district Workers Party organised the reception for Menon and his wife Lutfunnessa Beauty on becoming lawmakers.
The party's district unit President Nazrul Haque Nilu presided over the programme.
