Six leaders of Awami League and affiliated organizations in Savar’s Ashulia have lost their posts for violating party discipline and running as rival candidates in the fifth phase of the Union Parishad election.

Last night, the decision was made in an emergency meeting attended by leaders from Dhaka district, Ashulia Upazila, and Ashulia thana AL in Palli Bidyut area, Faruk Hasan Tuhin, convener of Ashulia thana AL, told our local correspondent last night.

“We have relieved them of their posts as per the central decision. According to the party’s constitution, those who are given responsibility for that vacant position have been informed of their responsibilities,” Faruk said.

They were originally expelled for breaking party rules. “We’ve already sent a resolution letter to the central committee with our decision,” he added.
