Bikalpa Dhara for army deployment during election

Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh wants deployment of army during the Eleventh National Election. The party is also against reestablishing borders of constituencies. Bikalpa Dhara placed their 13-point proposal in a meeting presided over by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda at 11 am on Monday in Election Building.

The Election Commission has sat in meetings with 27 parties so far.
