Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's ruling Awami League and jailed ex-premier Khaleda Zia's BNP, on Tuesday unveiled their manifestos ahead of the crucial December 30 General election.

Unveiling the ruling Awami League's election manifesto, Prime Minister Hasina asked voters to take a lenient view for any mistakes committed by her government during its two consecutive terms since 2009. The 21-point charter promised to put Bangladesh on a highway to development.

The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir released the manifesto. The BNP manifesto promised to scrap "all black laws" including the Digital Security Act, Official Secrets Act and Special Power Acts to facilitate freedom of speech and expression.

Khaleda Zia, who is serving a 10-year jail sentence on corruption charges, has been barred from contesting the polls. 

According to the election commission officials, around 100 million people are eligible to cast their votes in the general elections. The election commission ordered the deployment of the forces across the nation to maintain law and order.
