NOAKHALI, Jan 14 (BDNEWS): At least 300 leaders and activists of ruling party BNP and its front organisations have joined the Awami League (AL) Saturday at a meeting at Farayezi Bazar in Noakhali.
Participating in the meeting, AL central Joint General Secretary Obaidul Kader said the people of Bangladesh will resist February 15-style farcical election making false voter list.
He said: "we won't accept the general election without cancelling the false voter lists and resignation of the Chief Election Commissioner".
