Sultan Mansur pays homage to Bangabandhu

Sultan Mohammad Mansur, who took oath as an MP defying his party Gano Forum’s decision, visited Tungipara and paid homage to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on Friday.


Talking to journalist, Mansur said he went to Tungipara in Gopalganj on Thursday evening and stayed there overnight.


The much-talked-about MP said he paid homage to the Father of the Nation by placing a wreath at the mausoleum of Bangabandhu and offered fateha there around 12pm.


Later, Mansur said he arranged a milad and doa mahfil there seeking salvation of the departed soul of Bangabandhu and his slain family members.


On March 7 last, Mansur, elected from (Moulvibazar-2) in the 11th parliamentary election using BNP’s election symbol as a candidate of Jatiya Oikya Front, was sworn in, prompting Gano Forum to expel him from the party.


The party accused the Moulivibazar-2 MP of committing acts devoid of parliamentary norms and morality by taking oath violating its decision.


BNP along with Gano Forum and some other parties joined the December-30 election in alliance under the banner of Jatiya Oikya Front. BNP bagged six seats while Gano Forum two in the election.


The alliance turned down the election results bringing the allegation of 'massive vote robbery' and decided not to join parliament.
