Bangladesh Nationalist Party vice-chairman and former foreign minister M Morshed Khan has quit the party on personal ground.
He sent his resignation letter to BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir through BNP’s Nayapaltan headquarters on Tuesday night.
Khan said that he left BNP due to personal reasons.
‘Considering the overall situation, I felt I have nothing more to contribute to the party. That’s why I’ve decided to step down,’ he said, hoping that the young leaders would take the party forward.
Khan also expressed his grievance over the way BNP was being run.
‘A big and popular party like BNP is now run through Skype. It’s very painful and regrettable,’ he said.
Tarique Rahman, the eldest son of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, has been acting as the party chief since she was jailed for corruption last year. He has been staying in London for over a decade now and takes part in important party meetings via Skype.
BNP Nayapaltan central office sources said Morshed Khan’s personal secretary took the resignation letter to the office on Tuesday night and handed it over to BNP Senior Joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
Morshed Khan remained inactive in BNP’s politics since 1/11 political changeover in 2007.
He wanted to get party nomination to contest the 11th parliamentary election from Chattogram-8 constituency but the party nominated Chattogram South district unit convener Abu Sufiyan.
