Leader of the Opposition Sheikh Hasina on Monday called upon the people to throng the capital from all over the country on the day Justice KM Hasan assumes office as the chief of the next caretaker government so that the interim government will be unable to function.
Sheikh Hasina said at the Grand Rally at Paltan Maidan, "Come to Dhaka, with whatever you can in your hands, on the day the present government will step down and KM Hasan will assume office without realizing our demands. We will see how Hasan-led caretaker government and Aziz-led Election Commission continue functioning."
She said that the election cannot be held under Justice KM Hasan-led caretaker government and Justice Aziz-led Election Commission and again questioned the neutrality of former chief justice KM Hasan and Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) MA Aziz.
Former prime minister Hasina threw an apparent challenge to the ruling alliance amid repeated slogans and claps from the tens of thousands of opposition coalition activists and supporters. The tenure of the ruling alliance will expire on October 27.
