Wearing funeral shrouds, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) activists in the district staged demonstrations demanding party nomination for Bhanga upazila BNP chairman Iqbal Hossain Selim for Faridpur-4 (Bhanga, Sadarpur and Charbhadrason) constituency.
The activists lying on the road in front of his office on Sunday morning chanted slogans demanding his nomination. Prior to this, the party workers of the three upazilas called for Selim’s nomination by organising a press conference.
They said forgetting previous disagreements between different factions of Faridpur BNP; we
unanimously demand the
nomination of Selim for Faridpur 4 constituency.
Warning that BNP would suffer immensely in the constituency if film actress Sharia Islam Saila is finally nominated for the seat, Selim’s supporters said, “We would not cooperate if the nomination finally
goes to her.”
