Police on Thursday foiled an attempt of the Left Democratic Alliance (LDA) to besiege the office of the Election Commission.

The law enforcers put barricade at Sonargaon intersection in the city’s Karwan Bazar area when an LDA procession was marching towards the Election Commission office in the city’s Agargaon at noon, reports UNB.

As the left activists refused to leave the place, the law enforcers charged batons to disperse them.

Later, the party leaders called off their programme for the day with brief speeches by Ganasanghati Andolan chief coordinator Zonayed Saki, among others.

Earlier, they brought out a procession from the Jatiya Press Club and paraded through Matsa Bhaban, Shahbag and Bangla Motor areas.
