RAJSHAHI: Six local leaders of Bangladesh Awami League (AL) have been expelled at Durgapur upazila in the district for declaring themselves as rebel candidates for the upcoming union parishad (UP) polls.

The UP election is scheduled to be held on December 26.

The upazila unit AL president Nazrul Islam confirmed the matter on Thursday afternoon in a press briefing held at the AL office.

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

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