BNP`s elected candidate from Thakurgaon-3 constituency Zahidur Rahman has taken his oath following Gano Forum MP Sultan Mohammad Mansur and Mokabbir Khan. Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhary administered his oath taking ceremony at her office at 12 pm. The ceremony was moderated by the Senior Secretary of the Parliament Dr. Zafar Ahmed Khan.
Earlier Zahidur Rahman wrote a letter to the Speaker expressing his interest in taking oath this morning (Thursday). The Speaker`s private secretary MA Kamal Billah confirmed the news.
Zahidur Rahman becomes first among the six elected BNP candidates who took the oath.
BNP and Oikya Front were claiming from the beginning that none of them would take the oath. Before Sultan Mansur and Mokabbir Khan`s swearing in, information about this was available. But Zahidur Rahman made the decision of swearing in without giving any hint.
