‘Foreign interference in our polls will not be allowed’

Agriculture Minister Dr Abdur Razzak said, foreign interference in our country's elections will not be allowed. Bangladesh is an independent and sovereign state. This country achieved independence through a bloody war. The self-esteem of the country will not be compromised in any way.

The minister said this while addressing reporters at a program in Mujibnagar Amrakanan in Meherpur on Wednesday (November 16).

He said that it is clearly mentioned in Article 126 of the Constitution - Election Commission will conduct the election of the country. And they will be assisted by the Deputy Commissioner and Police Department. Following their cooperation, there will be a fair and free election in the country.

Abdur Razzaque also ruled out the speculations about a possible famine saying there is no scope to encounter a famine as an overwhelming quantity of food grains are being produced locally.

State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain, Mohammad Shahiduzzaman Khokon, the MP from Meherpur-2 constituency and others attended the program.
