‘Holding polls on Saraswati Puja day an unjust act’

UNB, Dhaka

Jatiya Oikyafront convener Dr Kamal Hossain yesterday said holding polls to two Dhaka City corporations on the day of Saraswati Puja is an unjust act. “The government has committed an unjust act by fixing the election date on January 30 as the Saraswati Puja will be held on that day. Such things didn’t happen in the past,” he said.

Dr Kamal came up with the remarks after a meeting of Jatiya Oikyafront’s steering committee at his Motijheel chamber. He said if the election cannot be held on the Eid day, it should be held on the day of Saraswati Puja either.  “I think it’s the government’s failure and negligence.” The Oikyafront convener also said their alliance has moral support to Dhaka University students’ movement demanding deferment of the election date.

On December 22 last, Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda announced the election schedule for the polls to DNCC and DSCC, fixing January 30 as the voting date. Meanwhile, an appeal was filed today with the Appellate Division challenging the High Court order that turned down a writ petition seeking deferment of the January 30 elections as it coincides with Saraswati Puja of the Hindu community.
