Jatiya Oikyafront today sought the intervention of Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda for holding an election rally in Dhaka on December 27.
Oikyafront coordinator and BNP Standing Committee Member Nazrul Islam Khan came up with the call in a letter that handed over to the CEC this afternoon.
“Dhaka Metropolitan Police did not permit us to hold the rally violating the Representation of the People Order 1972, Khan alleged in the letter.
“RPO permits us to hold such rally and it is a tradition of political parties hold a large-scale rally at the end of the election campaign, he said.
Police have denied the alliance of holding the rally after December 24 in the name of political chaos, Khan alleged.
“This is not rational. They (police) have violated the RPO indeed,” the BNP leader said.
