Staff Reporter :
The government wants to hold a "controlled election as per its plan" thus leaving the public in apprehension whether a free and fair election will be held or not, said the top leaders of Left Democratic Alliance in a briefing on Wednesday.
"The Election Commission (EC) has no control on administration or police and that is visible. The EC apparently cannot go beyond the government's instruction," the leaders of the alliance said while disclosing their 32-point election manifesto in a press briefing at Maitree Milanayaton in Dhaka.
"In this apprehensive situation, the Left Democratic Alliance has decided to take part in the election as part of its movement. But its participation in the polls still depends on the role of the government and the Election Commission," said Mohammad Shah Alam, Coordinator of Left Democratic Alliance.
The Communist Party of Bangladesh's Mujahidul Islam Selim said, their manifesto reflects the expectations of 99 percent people of the country.
A total of 131 candidates will contest with LDA tickets across the country.
