The newly appointed acting president and general secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) will get full authority to regulate all organising activities of the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) until its next council.
The current committee, led by Al Nahean Khan Joy and Lekhak Bhattacharjee, will have the power to form organising committees and carry out all other organisational tasks in the remaining 10 months of the committee's term.
AL joint general secretary and also former general secretary of BCL Abdur Rahman confirmed this to Prothom Alo.
Amid various controversies and allegations of corruption, BCL president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon and general secretary Golam Rabbani have been removed from their respective posts.
Following AL Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at prime minister Sheikh Hasina's official residence Ganabhaban on Saturday, party general secretary Obaidul Quader told newsmen that the BCL leaders have been asked to step down.
Instead, vice-president Al Nahean Khan Joy and joint secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee were appointed as acting BCL president and acting general secretary respectively.
