Bangladesh Begins Poll Campaigning
Dhaka: Election campaigning in Bangladesh began on Monday amid reports of arrests of hundreds of leaders and members of former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia’s main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).
The country will hold general elections on December 30, pitting the BNP against the ruling Awami League. “BNP leaders and activists cannot stay in their house, everyday the police is arresting our leaders and party activists.
