People vying for various posts in the upcoming Gazipur City Corporation election have resumed their campaigns to woo voters.

The election was scheduled for May 15 but the High Court had postponed it for three months after a writ petition was filed challenging the polls.

The Appellate Division overturned the stay order after the Awami League and BNP candidates and the Election Commission challenged the order. The EC fixed June 26 as the new date for the election.

Awami League’s mayoral candidate Jahangir Alam, BNP’s Hasan Uddin Sarkar, along with other candidates, started canvassing from Monday morning.

The ruling party’s Gazipur metropolitan unit chief Azmat Ullah Khan said their activists had hit the campaign trail following the directive of Awami League chief Sheikh Hasina. 

“Our sole goal is to ensure victory for the party’s candidates,” he said.

Jahangir Alam, the ruling party mayoral candidate, told the party activists to reach out to the voters.

BNP’s mayor aspirant Hasan Uddin’s election coordinator Mazharul Islam said their activists, who are not accused in cases, would be made polls agents. “The party’s central command is maintaining constant contact with us,” he added. 

The party’s Gazipur unit General Secretary Kazi Sayedul Alam Babul said they had directed their activists to remain alert and inform the BNP central command if they see any irregularities.
