BNP, AL to resist Alamgir Kabir
Grassroots leaders and activists of both BNP and Awami League have vowed to resist former BNP state minister Alamgir Kabir in Naogaon-6 (Atrai-Raninagar) constituency.
Hundreds of BNP leaders staged agitation in Atrai and Raninagar upazilas yesterday and threatened to resign en masse following a rumour that Kabir, now a leader of Liberal Democratic Party, was returning to BNP.
Local Awami League leaders also told the media that they would reject Kabir if he gets nomination from the AL-led grand alliance. Alamgir Kabir won Naogaon-6 seat three times since 1991.
