13 Bogura AL leaders expelled

BOGURA: Thirteen local leaders of Bangladesh Awami League (AL) have been expelled at Shibganj and Sherpur upazilas in the district as declaring them as rebel candidates for the upcoming union parishad (UP) polls.

Nine of them are from Shibganj upazila while the rest four from Sherpur upazila. The UP election is scheduled to be held on November 11. A press release, signed by the district unit AL president SM Majibar Rahman and general secretary Ragebul Ahsan Ripu, confirmed the matter on Monday night.

The leaders were served a show-cause notice and repeatedly asked to withdraw from the election. But, they did not listen, the press release said.

The district leaders also recommended to the AL central committee to take stern organisational actions against them for breaching the party discipline, the release added.
