Bangladesh Hindu Chhatra Parishad has demanded of the Election Commission to reschedule the date of Dhaka city polls due to Saraswati Puja.

The organization made the demand from a human chain programme held in front of the National Press Club on Friday.

Gopal Kormokar said “The date of polls of two Dhaka city corporations has been fixed on the date of Saraswati Puja. It will interrupt the celebration of Puja of the Hindu community.”

General Secretary of Bangladesh Hindu Chhatra Parishad said “We have sent an application to the Election Commission (EC) in this regard. If the election date is not changed, we will take a peaceful movement with the secular people.”
