EC’s unwillingness to deploy army ‘proves its loyalty’

BNP standing committee member Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain on
Tuesday alleged that the Election Commission is not willing to deploy
army during elections to four city corporations slated for June 15 as
it is influenced by the government.
“The EC has decided not to deploy army during the city corporation
polls as it is subservient to the government,” he told reporters in Sylhet
during an electioneering in favour of 18-party-backed mayoral candidate
Ariful Haque Chowdhury.
Mosharraf said Arif was directly involved in implementation of all the
development activities done by late BNP finance Minister M Saifur
Rahman in Sylhet.
The BNP policymaker urged the local voters to elect Arif for further
development of the city.
Earlier in the day, Mosharraf along with former Dhaka mayor and
BNP vice chairman Sadeque Hossain Khoka, BNP joint secretary general M
Shahjahanj and education affairs secretary Khairul Kabir khokan
started the election campaign offering fateha at the Mazar of Hazrat
Shahjalal ®.
The BNP leaders will continue their campaign for Ariful till June 13.
