DINAJPUR: Two upazila level leaders of ruling Awami League’s associated organisation have been expelled from the party as they declared themselves as 'rebel candidates' in upcoming Union Parishad (UP) elections of Hakimpur upazila in the district.
The expelled leaders are upazila unit Swechchhasebak League vice-president Kawsar Rahman and the upazila unit joint secretary Shahdat Hossain Shado.
Kawsar Rahman and Shahdat Hossain were seeking party nomination as chairman candidates from No. 1 Khatramadhavpara and No. 2 Boyaldar union parishads in the upcoming UP election slated to be held on November 11. But they did not get any green signal from the high command.
As a result, the two candidates declared them as rebel candidate which has violated the party discipline.
