On 26 march, 1971, the liberation war started with the announcement of Major Ziaur Rahman’s independence. The country was liberated on 16 December,1971, through a bloody war of 9 months. As a result, on 16 December is our great Victory Day. The country was liberated for the democracy rights-where is this rights now ? In the 1970`s elections, the majority of the party (Awami League) did not take power. As a result, The liberation war begins-that was the democratic process. The 1970 election means that was the elected representative elected by the people’s votes.It is not because of liberation war.
After decades of independence democracy is still questioned. This is the question of how much human rights or democracy are now. This is the time of the campaign for eleven parliamentary elections in Bangladesh is going on. According to the constitutional rules, the field of election for all politicale parties will be equal-that means the election-level playing field will be equal. But, that situation in the country is in this election?

Generation do not want discrimination.
Throughout the countrywide campain of national unity leaders and leader’s of BNP were attacked, vandalized and massacred. police do not provide security. On the other hand,The police guard the leader’s of the awami-alliance, give security. So what is equql to the election level playing field? Generation do not want that. They want equal right’s.
