None but BNP raises allegations over GCC polls: Quader

DHAKA, June 26, 2018 : Awami League General Secretary and Road
Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said none but BNP made
allegation over the Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) election.

“There is no allegation of violence in the Gazipur City Corporation
polls. But, panic was created among people in the polls. In reality, nothing
was occurred,” he told a press conference at the party president’s Dhanmondi
political office here.

He said the city election was held in a peaceful manner as the voters
exercised their franchise from 8 am to 4 pm.

Voting of only nine centres out of 425 has been postponed, Quader added.

The AL General Secretary said they extended cooperation to the Election
Commission (EC) in holding the polls in a free, fair and neutral manner.

“We’ll accept the election results whether it is in our favour or not,”
he said.

He said BNP made various allegations in different times, but they could
not prove anything.
