BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday said the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda has disclosed the truth about ballot stuffing in the December 30 general election.

“Now the real incidents started to come out from Pandora’s Box. KM Nurul Huda could not keep the cat in the bag for long. The genuine truth of the midnight election has now slipped out of his mouth. Snatching away voting rights is same to robbery,” he said.

The BNP leader came up with the statement addressing a press briefing of the party at its central office in Nayapaltan of the capital.

“CEC treated like robbery through snatching away people’s right in December 30 elections. It is possible to prevent stuffing ballot boxes the night before elections by introducing the EVM (Electronic Voting Machines),” he added.

Rizvi further said, “This statement of you (CEC) remained as an important document to the nation of how you allowed stuffing the ballot boxes at night on December 29 and completed vote of rigging.”

He alleged that BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has been kept imprisoned in dark jail while HM Ershad has been made as ‘loyal’ leader of opposition in parliament.

The BNP leader lamented that Khaleda Zia is deprived of her right to get treatment in specialized hospital inside the country. “It seems to be that the government is hatching conspiracy to kill her (Khaleda).”
