Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called on President Abdul Hamid at Bangabhaban on Sunday afternoon.

Sheikh Hasina met the president at 1pm and briefed the president about her recent visit to New York to attend the 69th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

The premier also talked about the removal of Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Abdul Latif Siddiqui from the cabinet.

Earlier on October 3, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina told journalists that Latif would be removed from the cabinet and his party post once the office opens after the Eid holidays.

She also said the file for his removal would be sent to the president for approval immediately after his arrival.

“Following the president’s signature on the file, the cabinet division would issue a gazette to this effect,” Musharraf said.

On September 28, Latif made a controversial statement on hajj while addressing a reception arranged by the Tangail expatriates in New York, USA.
