    Opposition BNP on Sunday accused Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of violating the election code of conduct by seeking votes for Awami League from party rallies spending public money. “The Prime Minister is seeking votes for boat (AL election symbol) by holding rallies at government expenses. It’s a complete violation of the election code of conduct,” said BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. The BNP spokesman said this violation of the election code of conduct proves that fair election is not possible under this government. Fakhrul was talking to reporters after placing wreaths along with BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia at the grave of late President Ziaur Rahman at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the city, marling the party’s 35th founding anniversary. On September 1, 1978, late President Ziaur Rahman founded the party with a 19-point programme to build a self-reliant Bangladesh. The party is celebrating the day with various programmes across the country. Fakhrul also alleged that the government is hatching various plots to hang onto power even on completion of its tenure. Referring to a recent reported meeting of some ruling party leaders at Law Minister Shafique Ahmed’s residence, he said, “The government has started conspiring to cling to power. They’ve kept various ambiguities in the constitution so that they can perpetuate their power using those.” He warned that people would not allow the government to implement its evil designs as they will create a strong resistance against any conspiracy against the country and democracy. Mentioning that the country is passing through a critical time, the BNP leader said the current regime, defying public opinion, scrapped the caretaker government system by using its majority in parliament, creating a deep political crisis in the country. Fakhrul said BNP chief Khaleda had given democracy an institutional shape by establishing parliamentary democracy in the country. Stating that the country’s democracy is now at stake, he said, “Today, we’re taking vow that we’ll force the government to arrange the national election under a non-party government to restore democracy.” Fakhrul also recalled the role of BNP founder Zia in establishing multiparty democracy in the country and said, “Under his (Zia) leadership, Bangladesh had had come out to the light of multiparty democracy from the dark one-party role.
