Dhaka: Jatiya Party (JaPa) presidium member Md Azam Khan on Monday sought security from the Election Commission (EC) as well as its cooperation to conduct election campaign smoothly as ruling party leaders and activists are barring his election campaign in Nasingdi-2 (Palash) and Naryanganj-1 (Rupganj) constituencies.
He also alleged that his wife Rahela Parvin Shishir who has been contesting as a Jatiya Party candidate from Gazipur-5 (Kaliganj) has also being barred from conducting electioneering by the ruling party men, reports the UNB.
