Bangladesh Elections: 5 Killed In Clashes, Hasina Confident Of Victory

Dhaka: At least 5 persons were killed and ten were left injured after clashes broke out between the ruling Awami League and the opposition BNP in Bangladesh on Sunday. At present, voting is underway for the 11th Parliamentary elections in Bangladesh.

Sheikh Hasina. the current Prime Minister of Bangladesh, is confident of retaining power for the third consecutive time. “I believe that people will cast their votes in favour of Awami League to continue the pace of development,” Hasina said.

On the other hand, Hasina is facing anti-incumbency after being in office since 2009. She is facing stiff competition from the united opposition front comprising of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), Jatiya Oikya Prokriya, Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal, and Nagorik Oikya.

All the opposition parties have united under the banner of Jatiya Oikya Front (JOF), helmed by the jailed leader Khaleda Zia’s Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).

To prevent any untoward incident and rumour mongering before polls, high speed internet services have been suspended until Sunday midnight. Bangladeshi news channel Jamuna TV has also been taken off air on Sunday. The Government has also banned the use of vehicles in Dhaka during polls.
