Hindu community demands deferment during Durga Puja

Hindu community of Rangpur Sadar upazila observed a daylong token hunger strike yesterday, demanding that the Election Commission defer the date of Rangpur-3 by-election, as the announced date of polls falls on the day of Maha Saptami. The election is scheduled for October 5, while the five-daylong Durga Puja festivities should begin on October 4.
