Barishal: Election Commissioner Kabita Khanam on Wednesday suggested the officials the commission to stay away from misuse of law.

Attending a discussion over national election at Deputy Commissioner’s office in Sadar upazila, Kabita Khanam said ‘We have to be alert that the festivity of the polls never turns into fear. The election must not be questionable.’

Election Commission must not show any discretionary attitude and be aware that commission’s direction never remains in words only, she added, reports the UNB.

Deputy Commissioners of six districts, police superintendents, Upazila Nirbahi Officers, Officer-in-charges, Army, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), Coast Guard, National Security Intelligence (NSI), Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI), top officials of Election Commission were present there among others.
