Sylhet Bureau /
Abdul Qayyum Jalali Punki has been appointed as the convener and Miftah Siddiqui as the secretary. The new convening committee of the Sylhet metropolitan branch of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has been approved.
The 29-member committee was approved by Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday (September 29th).
Panki was the vice-president of the newly formed committee of Sylhet Metropolitan BNP and Mifta was the organizing secretary of the last committee.
Confirming the approval of the new convening committee, Abdul Qayyum Jalali Punki said, “I will do my best to fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to me.” My first goal will be to speed up the movement for the release of Khaleda Zia by strengthening the party organizationally.
The last Sylhet Metropolitan BNP committee was formed through the conference on January 7, 2016. Nasim Hossain was elected president and Badruzzaman Selim general secretary.
Badruzzaman Selim became the rebel candidate in the 2018 Sylhet City Corporation election by disobeying the party’s decision. He was then expelled from the team. He later withdrew from the election under party pressure.
Selim moved to the UK soon after the election. After the deportation order was revoked, Selim did not return to the country. In his absence, Ajmal Bakht Sadeq acted as the acting general secretary.
The two-year committee expired three years ago. Many leaders are inactive. As a result, there was a demand for the formation of a new committee for a long time.
