Monirul Haque said, "Candidate of 'boat' gathered outsiders at different polling stations and showed muscle power. They are not voters in the concerned locality. I believe the residents of Cumilla have given verdict in favour of me. I am waiting for results."

Voting continued from 8:00am to 4:00pm at a stretch on Wednesday.

Returning officer Md Shahedunnabi Chowdhury said the turnout of voters was more or less 60 per cent. Voting continued in several polling stations even after the stipulated time, he added.

Monirul Haque alleged "AL candidate brought out showdown gathering outsiders in front of different polling stations. They were not the voters of concerned centres. I believe people have casted their votes for me. Now, I am waiting for the result."
