Mottalib’s election camp was opened in Ward No. 5 of Barahatiya Union at around 8 pm on Sunday night. Speaking at the inaugural event, Ritan Barua said, “I am speaking about our MP. I want to tell you one thing. We stole your votes in the 2014 elections. It is as simple as that. We also participated in vote looting in 2018. Now our Prime Minister repeatedly gives a statement that we are under pressure from the international community. We have to stand in queue to vote without fighting with each other. This has to be shown to the world.”

During Ritan Barua’s speech, Wahidul Islam, son of independent candidate Abdul Mottaleb, MD Riyad, former assistant secretary of the Central Students League, Sajjad Hussain, former sub-madrasa affairs secretary of Chattogram District Students League, were present.

MD Riyad told Prothom Alo that Retan Barua had worked diligently for the sitting MP in the last two elections but in return he had only faced harassment. He made this comment in frustration.
