Two Noakhali BNP leaders exempted for participating municipal polls

NOAKHALI: Two local leaders of BNP were exempted from their respective posts in the district on Wednesday for participating municipal polls in the upcoming Noakhali municipality polls defying the party’s decision.

The municipal election is scheduled to be held on January 16.

The exempted leaders are: Noakhali district unit BNP organising secretary Shahidul Islam Kiran and Noakhali municipality BNP president Abu Naser.

A release, signed by the BNP senior joint secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, confirmed the matter.

They were exempted on the basis of specific allegations of breaching the party discipline, the release said.

The district BNP president Abdur Rahman said assistant organising secretary and vice-president will perform duties instead of them following the party’s constitution.
