Sajeda’s son Labu gets AL nomination in Faridpur-2 by-polls

Shahdab Akbar Chowdhury Labu, the younger son of the late deputy leader of the Jatiya Sangsad Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury has been nominated as Awami League (AL) candidate in Faridpur-2 (Nagarkanda- Saltha) constituency by-polls.

AL Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua said Labu has been nominated as the party candidate to represent the boat symbol in the by-polls to the constituency which became vacant following his mother Sajeda Chowdhury’s death.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the AL’s Parliamentary Board and Local Government Representative Nomination Board with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair at Ganabhaban on Tuesday, he added.

Sajeda Chowdhury breathed her last on September 11 at the age of 87.

The Parliament Secretariat later declared the Faridpur-2 seat vacant on September 13.
