Mymensingh BNP factions scuffle outside central office

Workers of Mymensingh BNP factions yesterday were locked into a scuffle in front of the party's central office at Naya Paltan in the city yesterday, leaving at least 10 people injured.
Meanwhile, BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain inducted nine local leaders into Munshiganj BNP convening committee. Five leaders were also dropped from the committee.
"The action has been taken following an order of the party Chairperson Khaleda Zia," Delwar said in a letter to the convening committee.
The scuffle between the supports of Mymensingh BNP factions took place in front of the party's central office around noon, sources said.
They came to Dhaka along with their leaders, Mymensingh BNP convener Afzal H Khan and local leader Ali Asgar, as the party's Joint Secretary General Abdullah Al Noman called in them to resolve internal conflicts.
Witnesses said when Noman was talking with the leaders of Mymensingh district (north) BNP and city BNP committees in the party office, supporters of the two factions who gathered outside got locked into a scuffle.
Later, law enforcers brought the situation under control.
Supporters of Ali Asgar alleged that Afzal H Khan inducted his family members into the convening committee and left out a number of dedicated leaders, including Asgar. But supporters of Afzal Khan denied the allegations.
When asked about the incident, Noman said they have already resolved the disputes involving some party units in Mymensingh and the process is going on to solve other problems.
