People reject BNP in city-polls for wrong politics: Nanak

DHAKA Awami League (AL) Presidium Member Jahangir Kabir Nanak today said people rejected BNP in the Saturday's Dhaka city corporations' polls due to pursuance of its wrong politics.

People rejected BNP in the Dhaka city corporations' polls as they pursued wrong politics. If BNP does not come out of this situation, people will throw them to dustbin, he told a press briefing held at AL President's political office at Dhanmondi here.

He said there is no alternative to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for carrying out development and establishing good governance in the country, adding that, and the Dhaka city corporations' polls proved that people rejected BNP.

About Electronic Voting Machine (EVM), he said it is a very easy and transparent method, adding: Using this EVMs method, a free, fair and creditable Dhaka polls was held yesterday.

Referring to BNP-enforced today's shut down, he said BNP basically rejected people's mandate rather than the polls by observing dawn-to-dusk strike in the city.

AL Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim, Organizing Secretary BM Mozammel Haque and senior leaders were present at the briefing, among others.
