Of the bigwigs, Mosaddek Ali Falu, who have been made the party vice chairman in the new committee and is now in Thailand on medical issues, rendered his resignation showing no particular reason.
Following his footsteps, Shamimur Rahman Shamim, newly-made assistant publicity secretary, also resigned. Sources said his new position disappointed him as the new responsibility is a mere demotion for him.
On behalf of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday afternoon announced the executive and standing committees at a press briefing in the party’s Nayaplatan central office.
Earlier, the party unveiled the names for 41 posts, including that for secretary-general, senior joint secretary-general, treasurer, joint secretaries general, organising secretaries and assistant organising secretaries.
However, some changes were brought in the earlier declared posts.
