Detective Brach (DB) additional commissioner Harun-or-Rashid on Thursday said one party is trying to foil the free and fair elections by not participating in the elections according to the elections schedule.
He said this while talking to the journalists about the December 10 human chain program called by BNP at DB office in Minto Road of the capital.When asked whether BNP has taken the permission of the Election Commission regarding the human chain, Harun-or-Rashid said, "I cannot say whether they’ve taken the permission or not. But I think that they are not taking part in elections according to the schedule announced by the election commission. So why should they care about the election commission?”
He said since the announcement of the schedule, we are working under the guidance of the Commission. Those who want to foil the elections, set fire to vehicles at various places, obstructed the movement of vehicles, attacked the police, vandalized the cars of Rajarbagh Hospital, attacked the Chief Justice's building, obstructed the fair elections. But now they are sabotaging amid the siege again.
When asked what action will be taken, If BNP tries to do human chain without taking permission, Harun said, “If any party wants to hold human chain including the accused in various cases without taking the permission of the higher authority, then there is no obstacle for the law enforcement agencies to arrest them.”
