BNP vice-chairman Sadeque Hossain Khoka has decided to step down from the post of convener of the party’s Dhaka city unit, the BNP leader announced today.
“I have already informed party Chairperson Khaleda Zia about my decision,” Khoka told reporters while addressing a press conference at Bhashani Hall in Nayapaltan of the capital.
“After discharging the duty of convener for a long time, I have decided to quit as I want changes in the leadership for the sake of continuation of the democratic trend,” he said.
He also hoped that the change will strengthen the anti-government movement of the party.
The announcement came three days after the party standing committee members discussed reconstitution of the city committee with Khaleda.
Recently, Khaleda came down hard on the city unit leaders for their role in the anti-government movement centering January 5 national polls.
