Police harassment of opposition activists has reached unprecedented levels ahead of the national election, Jatiya Oikyafront leader Dr Kamal Hossain alleged yesterday.
The current government has outdone all the previous autocratic governments in carrying out its activities. I have not seen such a situation in the last 47 years since the country s independence,” he told a press conference at the alliance s Purana Paltan office.
He said the government was blocking the way to a fair election by arresting and repressing opposition leaders and activists.
“The police force is being used centrally to arrest opposition leaders and activists. This hampers the congenial atmosphere of the election.
