Ctg AL's Mohiuddin, Nurul Islam have happy ending

Burying their differences over nomination in Chittagong-8 constituency, Chittagong Mayor and city unit Awami League President ABM Mohiuddin Chowdhury and Vice President Nurul Islam had a cordial meeting on Wednesday night, much to the relief of party supporters just 25 days ahead of the parliamentary election.
The two leaders met at the mayor's Chasma Hill residence for the first time since Nurul Islam, also a prominent industrialist, got party nod to contest the parliamentary election from Chittagong-8 (Kotwali), one of the four city seats, as a candidate of AL-led grand alliance.
As Nurul Islam got the party nomination in face of strong opposition from city Mayor Mohiuddin, a noticeable distance was created between the two top party leaders in Chittagong and Mohiuddin on two occasions refused to meet Islam, when the latter went to the mayor's Chasma Hill residence.
Nurul Islam accompanied by former minister and city AL President MA Mannan, former lawmaker Ishaque Miah and a few ward councillors went again to the mayor's residence to meet Mohiuddin at around 9:00pm on Wednesday, a day before the mayor's departure for Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj.
The mayor this time greeted Islam warmly, wished his success in the poll in the vital seat and directed party leaders, activists and supporters to work together for Islam for Chittagong-8 and other candidates in city constituencies, sources said.
Later, the mayor formed a coordination committee for Chittagong-8 constituency with Mahtabuddin Chowdhury and advocate Ibrahim Hossain Chowdhury Babul as its convener and member secretary.
The mayor, who left Chittagong early yesterday for Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj, is scheduled to return on December 12, party sources said.
