Dhaka, 1 April, Abnews: BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has demanded equal space for all political parties to run campaigns in seeking votes ahead of the 11th Parliamentary Election.

Fakhrul said, “The political rights are restricted to the constitution and various Representation of the People Order (RPO) of the Election Commission (EC). And this is for all political parties. But matter is that they (ruling party) are seeking votes with government mechanism. No other party are getting the scope. It can never be accepted.”
