The excitement was seen among the leaders and workers who came to the central office of Awami League to collect the nomination forms for the 12th National Assembly elections.
As per pre-announcement, Awami League has started selling party nomination forms from Saturday morning.
Nomination aspirants coming from different regions of the country should collect the forms from which floor of the central office, the instructions have been hung in front of the office.
According to party sources, each candidate was asked to come along with maximum two people to buy the nomination form. But no one obeys that instruction. Due to the presence of hundreds of activists inside the office, the process of distribution of nomination forms is being disrupted. However, a festive atmosphere has been created around the central office.
Due to the presence of a large number of leaders and activists, severe traffic jams have been created on Bangabandhu Avenue and surrounding roads. To keep the situation under control, the road leading to Gulistan via Paltan Junction has been closed.
