The party nomination board, comprising BNP standing committee members, started the interview with those who bought party nomination forms for Mymensingh and Faridpur districts at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office at 10 am.

Though the authorities concerned blocked telecommunication application Skype on Monday the nomination seekers who faced interview said Tarique joined the nomination board on Tuesday as previous days using another telecommunication application.
Earlier on Monday, BNP alleged that Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) blocked telecommunication application Skype across the country after Election Commission Secretary Helal Uddin’s remarks that the Commission has “nothing to do” with BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman’s involvement in the nomination processes of the party.
