BNP is opposing election commission law to embarrass the govt: Hanif

Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbul Ul Alam Hanif said on Monday that the BNP is opposing the proposed law to form an election commission to embarrass the government.

He said this in response to the BNP’s remarks that the government was hastily setting up an election commission to include in it party and loyal people

His remarks came after the ruling party paid homage at the memorial of Shaheed Matiur Rahman at the premises of Nabakumar Institute in Bakshibazar on the occasion of the historic Mass Uprising Day.

Mentioning that BNP never wants fair politics in this country, Mahbub-ul-Alam Hanif further said that their aim is to create an unstable situation in the country on any issue.

Mass Uprising Day was observed in memory of the valiant people of the soil who made supreme sacrifices in the mass movement in 1969 that culminated in the country’s War of Liberation in 1971.

Different political parties, student organisations and socio-cultural organisations have taken different programmes to mark the 53rd anniversary of the day.

School student Motiur Rahman Mallik and teenaged Rustam were killed in police firing at the final stage of the mass movement that ousted the then Pakistani military ruler General Ayub Khan from power and paved the way for the independence of Bangladesh.

Matiur was a student of Class nine of Nabakumar Institute in Dhaka.
