Have people of Bangladesh won?
The Awami League government has managed the election well in their favour. It was clear yesterday that the election was controlled as there was hardly any presence of polling agents of the opposition alliance in the polling centres across the country. Not to mention that the EC has totally failed to conduct an election whose fairness cannot be questioned. From the very beginning, it was clear that there was no level playing field. The opposition candidates could not campaign before the election. The opposition candidates and activists were harassed and arrested. But still people wanted to participate in the election and wanted it to be free and fair. It is amidst such a backdrop that the election took place yesterday. But have people been able to exercise their franchise freely?
