Will work for BNP as activist Says Taimur
Defeated Narayanganj City Corporation (NCC) independent mayoral candidate Taimur Alam Khandakar, who was expelled from BNP, said he wants to work as an activist of the party.
"Though the party has expelled me, I'll work as an activist and will not join any other party," he said while talking to reporters at his Masdair residence in the city yesterday.
"They expelled me from the party's posts, but not as an activist. So, I'll work as an activist of the party," Taimur said.
On Tuesday, BNP expelled Taimur and Narayanganj city unit general secretary ATM Kamal for violating party discipline.
Kamal was the chief election agent of Taimur.
Two separate letters were sent to Taimur and Kamal from BNP's Nayapaltan central office on Tuesday night.
"As an activist, I want to wage a movement seeking the release of chairperson Khaleda Zia and against the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in the days ahead," he said, blaming the faulty EVM service for his defeat.
Meanwhile, he denied receiving any phone call or letter regarding his expulsion.
