BNP assistant organising secretary Abdus Salam confirmed the development to Prothom Alo. Earlier on 25 December, Taimur was removed from Narayanganj district BNP unit.
Abdus Salam told Prothom Alo that BNP is not contesting in any elections, including national, local, under this government. But Taimur Alam is competing in the election as an independent mayor candidate using the party’s post. He was removed to clarify the party’s stance in this election.
