Following a law and order meeting on Thursday, he told reporters that he had reminded the law enforcers of ‘their legal power to resort to firing to resist terrorists’.

“Seizing polling centres, casting false votes and vote rigging won’t be tolerated. I’ve asked them to fight until their last bullet is spent to prevent such incidents,” he added.

Officials of the home ministry, police, BGB, RAB, Ansar-VDP, coastguard, different intelligence agencies, administrative officials from division and district levels, and election commissioners and officers took part in the meeting held at the NEC auditorium.

The CEC said those who occupied polling centres and rigged elections would be treated as terrorists, irrespective of their party affiliations.

“I’ve asked every member of the law enforcement agencies to take the highest action against them. Armed members of the agencies will resist them,” he added.

The BNP has been questioning the Election Commission’s neutrality and expressing fears about the fairness of the polls.

The party has also said its candidates in over a hundred union councils could not submit their nominations due to obstruction and intimidation by activists of the ruling Awami League.

A total of 734 unions are going to the elections on Mar 22 in the first phase of the six-phase polls
