Sports minister new NSC chief
State Minister for Youth and Sports Ahad Ali Sarkar has been appointed chairman of the National Sports Council (NSC). He fills the gap left by General Moeen U Ahmed's resignation.
An official announcement yesterday said, "The appointment has been given as President Zillur Rahman has accepted the resignation letter of Army Chief General Moeen U Ahmed from the post."
On Monday, General Moeen resigned as NSC chairman citing personal reasons, amid controversies over Bangladesh Football Federation's sponsorship deal with Bashundhara Group.
