Jatiya Oikyafront leader Dr Kamal Hossain today expressed his belief that there is no good governance in the country.
If anybody claims that there is good governance in the country, I will say that he or she is a liar,” Dr Kamal said at a discussion at Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) as a chief guest.
Bangladesh Human Rights Federation organized the discussion on human rights, good governance and voting rights.
If the Election Commission fails to hold the December 30 elections in a fair manner, the consequences will be terrifying, he further said.
And if the people cannot exercise their voting rights then it will be a blow on the independence of the country which is similar to sedition, said Dr Kamal.He also demanded the EC to stop police from arresting people and added that police are creating panic among people, which is a violation of human rights.
“Arrest me if you can. It is a shame that the police are arresting people from the streets which is something I have not ever seen before,” he said.
He also urged the commission to perform its duties with all its power for the next ten days to hold the elections in a free and fair manner.
“All the power is now delegated to the Election Commission. The commission has to exercise the power for holding the elections,” he said.
