BNP-supported mayoral candidate Shakhawat Hossain has vowed to fight till the end if atmosphere stays congenial in Narayanganj City Corporation (NCC) polls.
“We will not boycott the polls if the people get the chance to exercise their right,” he told the reporters after casting his vote on Thursday morning.
He said: “The environment is still congenial in the polling centres. I am urging the people of Narayanganj to come to polling centres.
“BNP will win the polls if the voting ends in free and fair manner.”
A total 156 councillor candidates are fighting for 27 posts while 38 women are fighting for nine reserved seats.
