Now 43 Sylhet BNP leaders expelled for life

Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has expelled its 43 candidates for Sylhet City Corporation elections including mayor for life.

BNP Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi issued a notice in this regard on Monday night (5 June).

Sylhet BNP general secretary Emdad Hossain Chowdhury said the 43 leaders were expelled for ignoring the party decision.

Meanwhile, Sylhet city running mayor Ariful Haque Chowdhury and councilor of ward no 4 Rezaul Hasan Kayes Lodi boycotted the election.

Later, within the mentioned period, five gave their explanation but others did not. For this, the other 43 were expelled.
