BNP vice chairman and former Foreign Minister M Morshed Khan resigned from the party on Tuesday night.
According to a BNP source, the former minister sent his resignation letter through a representative to the party’s Nayapaltan headquarters around 10:45 pm tonight.BNP office sources said Morshed Khan's personal assistant Ataul reached the party’s Nayapaltan headquarters around 7:00 pm. But office secretary Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed was busy meeting with acting chairman Tariq Rahman over Skype. After his meeting ended, Ataul submitted the resignation letter to him around 10:00 pm.
In his letter, Morshed Khan mentioned “personal reason” for resigning from the party.
However, party sources said the veteran BNP leader resigned from the party out of anger and dissatisfaction.
Morshed Khan irked as he was deprived of party nomination in Eleventh National Election.
Moreover, a section of the party leaders has been pushing him to corner in Chattogram’s politics. His followers were excluded from party posts but party high command did not take any initiative into the matters that made him angry.
