In the Khulna City Corporation (KCC) election, the five mayoral candidates started their election campaign by answering different questions of the voters on the same stage.

Mayor candidates face voters in the `Face to Public` on the occasion of 10:30 am on Saturday at the Sushasoner Jonno Nagorik (SUJAN). But at the end of the ceremony, tensions arise at the venue of the questionnaire. 

SUJAN`s central committee secretary said the program started with the national anthem in the presence of Badiul Alam Majumdar. Sworn sentences are read on the application of voters to the franchise. Five mayor candidates present on stage are recruited. Then begins the question of the people to the Mayor candidates. 

Initially, Maulana Mujammil Haque, Mayor of Islamist Movement Bangladesh, answered the three questions. Then Mizanur Rahman of CPB and Jatiya Party`s mayor candidate Shafiqur Rahman (Mushfiqiq) answered three questions.

In response to this question, Awami League mayor candidate Talukdar Abdul Khalek said, if I select the mayor, then all the public transport, including easybike will be brought in the city corporation. The city will be clean free traffic area.

In response to the second question, he said strict action will be taken against the accused, including drug traders. He pledged to give Khulna City a drug-free city.

In response to the third question, the former Mayor said, I was the mayor of the city corporation in the past days. The people of the city are aware of my activities. I will make every effort to build Khulna as a modern city.

Lastly, the mayor of the BNP`s mayor, Nazrul Islam Manzu, started a fracas. After answering the two questions and when he was going to answer the third question, the fracas started.

In this situation, the organizers stopped to ask the question. Following the question, Dr Badiul Alam Majumdar tried to declare the question as of motive and conclude the end of the questionnaire. 

When a voter asked a question that why the Gazipur had not developed in the terms of BNP-Jamaat government, Nazrul Islam Manzu replied the question and then moved to another question.
