BNP on Saturday expelled Zahidur Rahman for taking oath as an MP violating party principles, according to bdnews24.com.
Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir confirmed the expulsion of Zahidur on Saturday night after a meeting of the party’s policymaking body National Standing Committee.
Pirganj Upazila BNP President Zahidur’s preliminary membership in the party was also cancelled, said Mirza Fakhrul.
Zahidur was the first of the six BNP MPs-elect, including Mirza Fakhrul, to take oath as the MP from Thakurgaon-3 seat on Thursday.
It came days before the deadline for swearing-in amid speculations that the BNP MPs-elect, except Fakhrul, are taking oath.
