Awami League has issued a show-cause notice to Gazipur City Corporation Mayor, also general secretary of the party’s Gazipur city unit, Jahangir Alam for allegedly making controversial comments on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and other local leaders.
AL office secretary Barrister Biplob Barua said the letter signed by party’s General Secretary Obaidul Quader was sent to Jahangir on Sunday, reports UNB.
He was asked to reply to the letter within 15 days, said Biplob.
The letter said Jahangir’s viral comments ruined the image and popularity of the political organization.
“It is equal to going against the interest of the organisation and breaking its disciplines which is a punishable offence according to the party’s constitution,” it said.
Jahangir was asked to explain in writing why organizational actions will not be taken against him, said the letter.
Mayor Jahangir said he will reply to the letter within the deadline and will obey the Party’s president Sheikh Hasina's decision in this regard.
The mayor said conspirators and anti-election groups have spread the technologically manipulated video as propaganda against him.
Meanwhile, the anti-mayor faction of the local AL continued their protests in Gazipur demanding action against him for his remarks.
