AL men rampage at Ctg party office over UP nomination
Supporters of nomination hopefuls went on rampage and vandalised local Awami League office in Chittagong today ahead of the upcoming union parishad elections.
Police charged baton, hurled teargas shells and fired blank shots to disperse the activists, Sub-inspector Golam Faruk of Kotwali Police Station told our Chittagong correspondent.
Centering the party nominations for the upcoming union parishad (UP) elections, over 300 activists of AL and its associate organisations from different unions of Anwara upazila went to the party office at Anderkilla at around 11:15am and started vandalising chairs and tables.
Kotwali Police Station Officer-in-Charge Jasim Uddin said, “Police fired 12 rounds of blank shots to disperse the activists.” Some fifty people and two cops were injured in the clash.
When contacted, Mafizur Rahman, general secretary of Chittagong (South) district unit of AL, said, “We will not give the nominations, the AL chief will give the final decision.”
