Gazipur city Mayor Jahangir Alam, who has been expelled from Awami League for his controversial comment on Bangabandhu and other local leaders, said he will submit an application requesting the Prime Minister to review the decision.

“A rival group has long been involved in doing harm to me since my involvement in student politics and as a sequel to the rivalry some people have hatched conspiracies against me from conversations at home,” he said while talking to reporters at his residence on Saturday.

The mayor also offered an apology and requested Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to rethink her decision.

“I didn’t do anything wrong. I’ll accept the Prime Minister’s decision.

If she (PM) wants, I am ready to walk the gallows. Bangabandhu, Sheikh Hasina and Awami League are in my existence and I want to remain as a general member and supporter of the party until death,” he said.

On Friday, the ruling Awami League expelled its Gazipur unit general secretary and city mayor Jahangir Alam for life for controversial comments on Bangabandhu and other local leaders.

The decision was made at a meeting of the Awami League Central Working Committee at Ganobhaban chaired by party chief and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday evening.

On October 3, Awami League issued a show cause notice to Gazipur City Mayor and the party’s metropolitan general secretary Jahangir Alam for his recent viral video of controversial comments on Bangabandhu, regarding the number of people martyred during the Liberation War and other local leaders.

He was asked to reply to the letter within 15 days.

The letter said Jahangir’s viral comments ruined the image and popularity of the political organization.

It is equal to going against the interest of the organization and breaking its disciplines which is a punishable offence according to the party’s constitution, it said.

Jahangir was asked to explain why organizational action will not be taken against him via the letter.

The mayor claimed that conspirators and anti-election groups have spread the 'technologically manipulated video' as propaganda against him.

AL metropolitan unit President Advocate Azmat Ullah Khan welcomed the expulsion of Jahangir Alam.
