BNP urges CEC to deploy army in Khulna, Gazipur city polls

BNP today met the chief election commissioner and requested for deployment of the military in the city corporation elections to Khulna and Gazipur to ensure free and fair polls.

A six-member delegation of the BNP held an hour-long meeting with the Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda at his Agargaon office around 11:00am this morning.
