BNP has expelled its chairperson’s adviser, Syed AK Ekramuzzaman, and National Executive Commit-tee member Shah Md Abu Zafar as they are going to take part in the 12th parliamentary election.
A press release signed by party’s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Tuesday said that the action was taken against the duo for their involvement in “anti-party activities.”
“On the basis of clear allegations of involvement in activities that go against the party’s discipline, BNP Chairperson’s Advisory Council member Syed AK Ekramuzzaman and National Executive Committee member Shah Md Abu Zafar have been expelled from all posts at all levels of the party, including pri-mary membership,” the press release says.
Ekramuzzaman collected nomination paper on Monday to contest the national election from Brah-manbaria-1 (Nasirnagar) constituency.
BNP has already rejected the schedule for the 12th parliamentary election. It considers collecting nomi-nation papers a “violation of party’s discipline.”
Ekramuzzaman contested the national election as an independent candidate in the 2001 election, and in the 2008 and 2018 elections as a BNP candidate, but he was never elected.
Meanwhile, BNP’s National Executive Committee member Abu Zafar joined the newly registered party BNM (Bangladesh Nationalist Movement) on November 21 to take part in the upcoming election.
