Rebels stun AL bigwigs

Yesterday's parliamentary polls saw some ruling Awami League bigwigs beaten by rebels.
Besides, two big shots of the Jatiya Party, Chairman HM Ershad and his brother GM Quader, also tasted defeat in national polls for the first time.
AL leaders Kazi Zafarullah and Dr Mostafa Jalal Mohiuddin lost the electoral battle to party dissidents, while former state minister Abdul Mannan Khan was defeated by State Minister Salma Islam, also a presidium member of the Jatiya Party.
Zafarullah lost to AL dissident Mujibur Rahman Chowdhury alias Nixon Chowdhury, nephew of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, while Dr Mostafa Jalal to rebel Haji Selim, a joint secretary of Dhaka city unit AL.
AL dissidents contested the polls in many constituencies that the party gave up to its allies and like-minded parties.
In Narsingdi-2, independent candidate Kamrul Ashraf Khan defeated Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) aspirant Zayedul Kabir, while in Narasingdi-3, AL rebel Sirajul Islam Mollah defeated sitting AL lawmaker Jahirul Haque Bhuiyan Mohon.
In Pirojpur-3, the AL nominee lost to rebel Rustom Ali Faraji, while AL candidate MA Malek was defeated by party dissident Makbul Hossain in Meherpur-2. Independent candidate Rahim Ullah won against Jatiya Party aspirant Anwarul Karim in Feni-3.
In Jhenidah-2, AL candidate Shafiqul Islam lost to party dissident Tahajib Alam Siddique.
