Sohel Dhaka city south BNP president, Qayyum north's
BNP has split Dhaka city committee into two--Dhaka South and Dhaka North-- to carry out the organisational activities smoothly, report agencies.
To that end, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia made Habib-un-Nabi Khan Sohel and Abdul Qayyum Dhaka city south and Dhaka city north presidents respectively.
Sohel was the member secretary of the outgoing undivided Dhaka city unit BNP while ex-ward commissioner Quayum was its joint convener.
Quayum has been staying abroad since he was charged with Italian citizen Cesare Tavella murder in 2015.
Ex-Dhaka city corporation ward commissioner Kazi Abul Bashar has been made the general secretary of Dhaka south unit BNP while another former ward commissioner of Kafrul area Ahsanullah Hasan general secretary of Dhaka north unit BNP.
Earlier, a 52-member convening committee of undivided Dhaka city unit BNP was formed on July 18, 2014 making Mirza Abbas its convener dissolving its previous committee-led by Sadeque Hossain Khoka.
Though the Abbas-led committee was supposed to form a full-fledged committee by six months, the new committees of Dhaka north and south units have been formed after two years and eight months.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir approved a 70-member and 64-member partial committees of the party’s new Dhaka south and Dhaka north units respectively on Tuesday night following a directive of party chairperson Khaleda Zia.
The two committees have been asked to form their full-fledged committees by a month.
