Jatiya Oikyafront, led by Dr Kamal Hossain, on Monday alleged that the incident of December 30 vote robbery reappeared in the DUCSU polls as the country's election system has collapsed.

"There had been huge enthusiasm among students and political leaders over the DUSCU election as it was held after 28 years. But, unfortunately, the nation today witnessed the incident of Dec-30 election in the polls," said Oikyafront's spokesperson Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

The spokesman of the opposition alliance came up with the remarks while speaking at a press briefing after a meeting of Oikyafront Steering Committee at Dr Kamal Hossain's Motijheel chamber, reports UNB.

Fakhrul said the Dhaka University students strongly protested the vote "robbery and terrorism by the ruling party students with the help of the university authorities".

"We condemn and protest the election irregularities in the DUSCU polls and we extend our all-out support to the student's justified demand," he said.

Fakhrul, also the Secretary General of BNP, said the DUSCU polls and recent upazila election have demonstrated once again that the country's entire election system has collapsed.

The voting in the long overdue election to Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) and its hall unions was held on Monday.
