The Jatiya Oikya Front wants to depict the “real scenario of vote robbery” in the 11th general election before the country’s people and international community through a public hearing on February 24 with Dr Kamal Hossain playing the role of its judge.

The Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) President ASM Abdur Rab came up with the information while talking to reporters after a meeting of the Front’s Steering Committee at Dr Kamal’s Motijheel chamber on Wednesday.

“Jatiya Oikya Front will arrange a public hearing on February 24, and a court and a trial stage will be set up there. Our sir Dr Kamal Hossain will remain there as its judge,” he said.

Rab further said: “They (Awami League) are saying majority people voted for them. We will clearly present before the country’s people and the world whether people voted them or there was a serious vote robbery. We will expose their misdeeds.”

He said the public hearing will be held from 10am and 6pm.

The Oikya Front leader said they are trying to book any of four the venues–Mohanagar Natya Mancha, Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh and the National Press Club to hold the program.

He said their alliance will invite all the political parties, except those who are in the Awami League-led Grand Alliance, who participated in the election to join the public hearing. “We’ll send invitation cards to them. But we won’t invite those were involved in the vote robbery.”

Besides, Rab said: “Oikya Front candidates, the relatives of those killed in the election violence, and those subjected to attacks, harassments and arrest will be requested to participate at the event.
