Staff Reporter :
BNP standing committee member Barrister Moudud Ahmed on Saturday said that the party's participation in Rajshahi, Sylhet and Barishal mayor polls is depending on the situation of Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) election.
"Gazipur city election scheduled to be held on June 26 is an acid test for the government and the Election Commission," Moudud Ahmed said this while addressing a discussion at the National Press Club.
National Youth Forum organized the meeting.
He said BNP would watch what they do in Gazipur city polls.
The BNP leader warned the government not to hatch any conspiracy to snatch people's mandate in the GCC polls like Khulna City Corporation (KCC) mayoral election.
"There is a huge public support for the BNP candidate in the Gazipur city polls. If the ruling party is involved in any vote rigging in GCC like KCC the consequence would be serious as the people would not leave them without any action," he said.
BNP has already taken interview of 16 aspirant mayoral candidates for elections in Rajshahi, Sylhet and Barishal cities scheduled for July 30.
Muhammad Saidur Rahman, president of the organization, presided over the discussion. BNP central leader Abu Naser Muhammad Rahmatullah and Youth Forum leader Mehedi Hasan Palash, among others, spoke on the occasion.
