BNP’s mayor candidate Nazrul Islam Monju has alleged mass vote rigging by ruling party men in today’s Khulna City Corporation election.
He accused the activists of ruling Awami League of driving BNP’s polling agents out of voting centres since the voting started this morning.
“They (AL) have occupied most of the voting centres and driven out our men. The Election Commission is silent in this regard,” Monju told journalists.
Within the first hour, ruling party men threw out BNP’s agents from at least 30 polling centres, he alleged.
The Daily Star found some allegations to be true through independent verification.
However, Monju said he will stay in the election race until the end. “I will accept the result if the election is held peacefully. If it is rigged, people will not accept the result.”
He cast his vote at Rahima Govt Primary School this morning.
