The BNP has rejected the results calling a shutdown for Sunday in protest against “horrific vote rigging, forgery and intimidation”.
“The people never support the BNP for what they did – corruption, terrorism, militancy, creation of Bangla Bhai, money laundering, stealing the orphans’ money – when they were in power,” Hasina said.

Senior party leaders were also present.
