Thakurgaon, Dec 26 (UNB) – Bangladesh Puja Udjapon Parishad on Tuesday urged the law enforcing agencies for taking necessary steps as the minority people of the country can practice their voting rights in the 11th national election, billed for December 30.
Sadar upazila unit Awami League president Advocate Arunangshu Datta Tito, and also the president of Thakurgaon unit Bangladesh Puja Udjapon Parishad, came up with the request while talking to reporters at a press briefing at his residence in the night.
“A vested quarter, under the shadow of a certain party, was involved in carrying out arson attacks on the houses of minority people in different parts of the district ahead of the election and also tried to destroy the communal harmony,” he said.
He also condemned the attacks strongly.
Advocate Balaram Guha Thakur, advisor of the Hindu, Buddha, Christian Oikya Parishad Central Committee, alleged that Election Commission has been playing a silent role in this regard.
“Therefore, we are urging the law enforcement agencies to ensure security of the minority people as they can cast their vote safely,” he said.
