Party presidium member and Dhaka University Prof Nurul Amin Bepari has been made the president of the new committee while Shah Alam Badal its general secretary.

Badal said, “We’re scheduled to hold a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club this morning, but when we went there the authorities concerned didn’t allow us to hold the programme saying that our booking has been cancelled.”

“We’ve decided to relieve AQM Badruddoza  Chowdhury, Abdul Mannan and Mahi B Chowdhury from the party as per section 5/2 of the party constitution for violating its discipline,” he said.

Badal claimed that they are the main stream of BDB and will soon join the Jatiya Oikya Front.
