He stood on a stage and raised slogans demanding the release of Khaleda Zia. Again, from the same stage, the slogan “We want to build a smart Bangladesh under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina” was shouted. He was 100% confident about his victory. Most of the meetings used to say that even if you are asleep, there is no chance to prevent victory. Major (retd.) Akhtaruzzaman, who was expelled from BNP for the sixth time, could not save his security deposit after the polls.

Akhtaruzzaman stood for election as an individual from Kishoreganj-2 Constituency consisting of Katiyadi and Pakundia upazilas. 16 thousand 199 got votes for the truck symbol. He needed at least 22,385 votes to save his bail.

Kishoreganj-2 constituency was won by another independent candidate Pakundia Upazila Awami League convener Md. Sohrab Uddin. His vote in the eagle symbol is 89 thousand 539. He became a Member of Parliament for the first time in the 10th National Parliament election wearing the boat symbol. He did not get party nomination even after the 11th and 12th elections.

Various discussions about independent candidate Akhtaruzzaman and ‘special phone’

There are six parliamentary constituencies in Kishoreganj district. Kishoreganj-2 was a place of special interest to the district residents in this election. Basically, the place of interest is created around Akhtaruzzaman. After buying the nomination papers, he was able to attract the special attention of the countrymen beyond his constituency by giving birth to new discussions. People were also curious about the results of this seat. He came to the fore again in the post-election discussion through the news of loss of security. The reasons for his voter disfavor and his political future are now on the lips of people.

Local people said that Akhtaruzzaman is known in the area as an outspoken and single-minded person. He has a habit of talking nonsense. It is difficult to predict in advance what to do and to whom. When someone’s danger becomes imminent due to idle talk, there is such apprehension around him in the minds of workers. In this situation, most of his loyalists did not want to be the workers of such an uncertain and mysterious leader. Many are putting forward the issue as a reason for not being able to facilitate the vote.

It is believed that even though BNP did not go to the polls as a party, Akhtaruzzaman tried to take the workers-supporters of the party to the center. Akhtaruzzaman thought that BNP people would vote for him at the centre. He used to ask for the release of Khaleda Zia in the meeting to win the mind of BNP. He also took a different strategy to get votes for the boat. On the stage where he used to talk about Khaleda’s release, Sheikh Hasina used to be full of praise for the government. His two-faced attitude lost the trust of BNP leaders and workers. As a result, BNP completely rejected him this time.
Akhtaruzzaman’s confidence in winning was sky high. Almost at the meeting, the Prime Minister said that he wanted his victory. No one can stop him from winning even if he is asleep. His supporters believed him to be the government’s ‘good book man’. There was campaigning in the polling ground, especially because the government will take him to parliament by winning this seat. Many believe that such baseless confidence on the part of candidates and activists has fueled such a flurry of votes.

According to Awami League and BNP leaders, former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Noor Mohammad was denied party nomination from this seat. Unable to find a boat, he withdrew from the competition. Later he supported Akhtaruzzaman instead of working for the boat. This support gained momentum in the truck symbol campaign, but failed to influence the vote. A force is active in Katiyadi Pakundia surrounding the parliamentarian as the reason being discussed. Locals are fed up with the pain of the army members. As soon as Noor Mohammad gave support, the army men started working for the truck. It concerns the common voter. As a result, the support of the member of parliament was not really beneficial for Akhtaruzzaman.

A senior leader of Katiadi Upazila BNP said on condition of anonymity that Akhtaruzzaman has given birth to various incidents in the election. Awami League tried to keep BNP happy. People don’t like that much drama. He did not get any party votes due to loss of trust.

Akhtaruzzaman’s statement is not known as he did not pick up the phone. However, his active worker is the former general secretary of Bangram Union BNP of Katiyadi Upazila. Quddus said, “What we came to hear, in the end nothing actually happened. In the beginning many representatives were on our side. At the end rely on the eagle. BNP was also not found this time.
