Hindu majority will decide February 27 election result in two upazilas of Bangladesh


Voters belonging to Jamaat-e-Islami are likely to play an important role in electing the chairman of Kawkhali upazila parishad in the district while the candidates in Nazirpur upazila are apparently looking to Hindu voters as the deciding factor for winning in the February 27 election.

Six candidates are competing for the chairman post in Kawkhali upazila where around 10,000 among 47,035 voters are adherents of Jamaat.

As there are two candidates from both Awami League (AL) and BNP for the chairman post, the votes of the two parties will be divided.
