BNP expels MP-elect Zahidur Rahman

The BNP on Saturday has expelled its lawmaker-elect Zahidur Rahman for taking oath as the member of the 11th parliament, violating the party’s decision.

The party took the decision in a meeting of its highest policy making body, National Standing Committee, at Khaleda Zia’s Gulshan office in Dhaka this evening.

On Friday, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said Zahidur Rahman committed a serious grievous offence by taking oath and their standing committee will finalise organisational action against him.

Party insiders said the BNP standing committee will also evaluate the position of five other party MPs-elect and work out strategies to prevent them from taking oath.
