'Kapasia UZ elections manipulated'
Defeated chairman candidate of Kapasia upazila Abdur Rashid Sarker, who is the central leader of Krishak League, yesterday alleged that chairman-elect Krishak League's central General Secretary Motahar Hossain manipulated in the January 22 upazila elections.
At a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters' Unity Abdur Rashid said supporters of Motahar Hossain beat up his supporters in different times before and during the polls.
"His men did not let my supporters hang my posters, they set fire to the posters, vandalised my election offices in different unions," he added.
He alleged that Motahar's men had captured the polling centres at Singhosri, Toke, Rayed, Barishbo and Durgapur ousting my polling agents and cast fake votes there.
Abdur Rashid further said that he sought assistance from the administration but the law enforcers did not help him.
