Magura’s Quazi Kamal also quits BNP committee

Another executive member of BNP’s newly formed committee has resigned from his post in protest of accommodating controversial leaders in the party’s standing and executive committees.


The resigned BNP’s executive committee member is Quazi Salimul Haq Kamal, popularly known as Quazi Kamal who is now abroad, sent his resignation letter to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia through an email on Wednesday, UNB reports.


He also sent a copy of his resignation letter to Magura Press Club around 12 noon.


Earlier on Saturday, BNP announced its 502-member executive, and 19-member standing committees and 73-member chairperson’s advisory council.


Hours after the announcement of the party committees, newly made party vice chairman Mosaddek Ali Falu and assistant publicity affairs secretary Shamimur Rahman Shamim quit their respective posts. Some other leaders are reportedly planning either to distance from the party or resign from their current posts.


Pointing finger at Netai Roy Chowdhury, Quazi Kamal, also a former Magura district BNP president, in his resignation letter said, “A person, who had played a controversial role during the 1/11 political changeover, has been made party vice chairman. This person has divided Magura district BNP by creating groups.”


Besides, he said, “It’s also not possible for me to do politics by denting my dignity with some people who have been made BNP standing committee members.”


Under the circumstances, Quazi Kamal said he resigned from his post.  He was elected MP from Magura-2 seat with BNP ticket in the much-talked-about Magura bye-polls in 1994.


He was also elected MP from the same seat in 2001, and later made Magura BNP president the same year.
