Local BNP will enforce a daylong hartal in the district on November 5 protesting the ‘dropping’ of the name of party senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman from the electoral roll.
VP Saiful Islam, district BNP president and convener of the 18-party alliance, announced the shutdown from a protest rally of the opposition alliance at Edward Park under Bogra municipality on Thursday afternoon. Saiful alleged that the government has dropped the name of Tarique Rahman from the voter list to keep him away from the polls.
He warned that there will be no election in the country unless the name of Tarique was included in the electoral register. The rally was followed by a procession that paraded the district town. – UNB
