Boycott corrupt people, war criminals in nat’l polls
Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) President Manjurul Ahsan Khan yesterday said a section is hatching conspiracy to foil the upcoming general election.
“Although the polls schedule has been announced, people are still confused whether it will be held or not,” Manjurul said, adding that the country would face a great crisis if the election is not held on the scheduled date. He was speaking at a rally organised by CPB at Muktangan in the city.
Manjurul urged all to be united to resist the conspiracy and boycott corrupt people, terrorists and war criminals in the election to establish democracy.
He also demanded that corrupt people and religion-based and anti-liberation war political parties be declared ineligible to contest the election.
Manjurul said the anti-corruption drive of the government has completely failed.
“When the drive started people arrested on charges of corruption didn’t get bail, but the convicted are getting bails now,” he said adding that people’s expectations after the 1/11 changeover have not been fulfilled.
He stressed the need for nominating candidates who believe in the spirit of the liberation war and speak against anti-liberation forces and fundamentalists, World Bank and IMF for establishing the rights of the people.
Abdul Kader, president of CPB city unit, presided over the rally that was also addressed by central party leaders Lakkhi Chakrabarti, Sajjad Jahir Chandan, Ruhin Hossain Prince and Abdul Malek.
