The leaders of Oikyafront and BNPJamaat have been taking many evil

designed strategies to foil the polls since the declaration of the 11th

parliamentary election schedulenow they are demanding immediate

resignation of the CEC, which is one of their political motivated

strategies, he told a press conference at AL president political office in

Nanak said Dr Kamal made derogatory comments on police at a meeting with

election commissioners on Tuesday. Earlier, he (Dr Kamal) also spread

falsehood and made comments on army force. The nation does not expect such

derogatory speech from them.
