The Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) ministry on Thursday issued a circular in this regard. The LGRD circular signed by deputy secretary Mohammad Abdur Rouf, said Mayor Motahar Hossain Manik was suspended according to provision 32, sub-clause (1D) of Local Government Act 2009.

The circular also stated that the accused mayor Motahar Hossain made indecent and derogatory remarks against the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on different occasions in recent times.  

He had used official vehicle frequently for travelling to Dhaka and remaining in Dhaka which prevented local people from accessing services from the mayor.
