Why is Fakhrul away?


Dr. Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain has been leading BNP for the last one week. Khandker Mosharraf has presided over the Rajshahi public meeting. He is being seen to give the direction to the other activities of the party. He also led the BNP’s meeting with the Election Commission today (April 17).

Although it is said that due to the death of his mother, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir is not participating in party activities for a few days. Besides, he is also physically a bit sick. However, another source of the party says that Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir is not the type of person who will be inert for a long time due to his mother’s death. Some decisions that are being imposed on the party from London are not something the Secretary-General of BNP is comfortable with. For example, Mirza Fakhrul was in the favor of ‘go slow’ policy towards the quota reform movement. He wanted to monitor this movement at first. But because of the pressure from Tarique Zia, he had to take a position in favor of the quota reform movement by convening a press conference.

It’s not just happened in quota reform movement; Mirza Fakhrul was dictated on his actions in various issues. He did not like it. That is why he has stepped away from the party leadership. And Dr. Khandaker Mosharraf came forward replacing him.
