Long lines of voters indicative of participatory election: Azmat Ullah
Awami League mayoral candidate Azmat Ullah Khan expressed his hope to triumph Gazipur City Corporation polls.
"I always respect the people's verdict. Whoever is elected by the people, I will definitely accept that verdict," he said after casting his vote at Tongi Darussalam Madrasa around 9:00am.
"The voters have come to the polling stations spontaneously. The long lines seen across Gazipur is indication of a participatory election taking place," he said.
Azmat Ullah said the people of Gazipur city have experienced disappointment for a long time and have shown their commitment by arriving at the polling stations for a change.
Replying to a query, Azmat Ullah refuted the allegation of driving away agents of other candidates from the polling centres.
"You should specify from which centre the agents have been driven away. If other candidates can't provide agents, I'm not going to take that responsibility," he told reporters.
