Awami League expels Jahangir Alam for life
Former Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) mayor and Awami League (AL) leader Jahangir Alam has been expelled permanently from the party for defying party decision.
The announcement came on Monday four months after returning to the party flouting his pledge that he would follow party discipline.
The decision was unanimously taken at a meeting of central committee secretaries held at the party President's Dhanmondi political office chaired by AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader.
The meeting decided to expel Jahangir Alam and recommended to party President Sheikh Hasina to take the final decision, said AL Joint General Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim.
Jahangir Alam was also a former general secretary of Gazipur city unit Awami League.
