Gross violations of election code of conduct

Free and fair elections are still a far cry in the present perspective of Bangladesh. In a democratic country, fair elections must be ensured to elect eligible representatives. But the means to conduct a fair election in Bangladesh is a million-dollar question now.

The constitution empowers the Election Commission (EC) to do everything for the sake of conducting a free and fair election in a congenial atmosphere, but the EC has proved once again its complete failure to provide this. How bizzare is it when the EC asks that the polling agents exercise their own power to remain in the polling stations, instead of doing their duty and protecting them! If this is what they believe, who is going to provide safety to the neutral polling agents and the innocent people?
