Chandpur-2 (Matlab North-South) Constituency Boat candidate Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya’s followers attacked and injured 15 leaders and workers of independent candidate M Isfaq Ahsan. M Isfaq Ahsan made this complaint in a press conference organized at his residence in Matlab North on Saturday afternoon.

M Isfaq Ahsan said, ‘Maya Chowdhury’s people have been beating my people with threats ever since the election candidacy was announced. Written and verbal complaints have been made to the District Returning Officer, District Commissioner and Superintendent of Police. But even then the attacks and torture did not stop.

In the press conference organized at the residence, M Isfaq Ahsan also said, ‘Yesterday (Friday) and today (Saturday) my leaders and workers were ambushed by the boat candidate Maya Chowdhury’s people on their way to my house. 15-20 leaders-activists including District Chhatra League Vice President Fahim, Matlab North Municipal Chhatra League General Secretary Tamim, Chhatra League leaders Rabbi Hasan Shanto, Arafat Hossain Nipu, Rihan, Tahsin, Murad and Shanto Sarkar were seriously injured.

It is known that the injured were rescued and sent to Chandpur Sadar Hospital and Matlab Dakshin Upazila Hospital. After receiving the news, the Matlab North Police Station went to the spot and brought the situation under control.

M Isfaq Ahsan alleged that 25-30 people including Sobhan Sarkar Shubha, Mehedi Hasan Kajal, Kamrul, Khorshed Alam Apu, Hossain Pramanik, Babu Pramanik carried out this attack on behalf of the boat-backed candidate.

Isfaq Ahsan said, ‘Common voters are afraid of such attacks on leaders and workers. If this continues, free, fair and impartial elections will not be possible. I will once again file a written complaint with the authorities regarding today’s incident. I call upon all of you to ensure a fair and impartial election environment.’

However, Maya Chowdhury said about this complaint, ‘There are many other candidates. It is not known who attacked whom. However, independent candidate M Isfaq Ahsan himself has been practicing and displaying weapons in the area for the past two days.

It is to be noted that on December 4, Chairman of Election Inquiry Committee and Joint District and Sessions Judge of Chandpur Syed Mahbubul Islam sought an explanation from candidate Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya for violating the election code of conduct. Following this, Maya’s lawyer has submitted a written explanation.
