Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Tuesday (Mar 21) expelled its Vice Chairman and journalist leader Shawkat Mahmud for violating party discipline.
The party issued a press release in this regard today.
The National Standing Committee of the party expelled him from all the party’s posts, including the primary membership, the release said.
On April 6, 2022, the BNP sought an explanation from Shawkat Mahmud for holding a rally in the city ignoring the party's decision.
At that time, a letter signed by the party's Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi asked Shawkat to give an explanation for his action within five days.
