The notice, signed by Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader, was sent to Jahangir on Monday, said Gazipur Awami League President Azmat Ullah Khan

Gazipur City Corporation Mayor and metropolitan unit Awami League General Secretary Mohammad Jahangir Alam has been asked by the party to explain the derogatory remarks he had made about Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and martyred freedom fighters.

Jahangir has, however, termed the allegations a conspiracy against him ahead of the elections.

The notice, signed by Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader, was sent to Jahangir on Monday, said Gazipur Awami League President Azmat Ullah Khan.

In this regard, Mayor Jahangir said: “I have been asked to explain my stance within 15 days. I will respond in writing in due time and will abide by the decision given by the party chief and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”

He alleged that his political opponent and some conspirators were spreading propaganda against him.

Recently, videos of Mayor Jahangir making some derogatory comments about Bangabandhu and some martyred freedom fighters at a program went viral on social media platforms.

Tension within the party became obvious on September 24, when the mayor’s supporters and the opponents demonstrated blocking the highway near Boardbazar.

Since then, party supporters of the rival groups have been staging protests and counter-protest programs in the city.
