Dr Reza Kibria, son of late finance minister and Awami League leader Shah AMS Kibria, will be participating in the upcoming 11th general election as a candidate of the Dr Kamal Hossain-led Jatiya Oikya Front.

Reza will be contesting the polls from Habiganj 1 constituency, said his Personal Assistant Shahab Uddin Shubho.

Reza has already collected his nomination form from Gono Forum, one of the parties comprising Oikya Front, and submitted it.

Oikya Front has already announced that it will contest in the polls with “sheaf of paddy,” the electoral symbol of key alliance member BNP.

As a result, local leaders of BNP and its affiliated organizations said, Reza would have to run for office with the “sheaf of paddy” too. 

Reza’s move has become the talk of the town, taking cue from former Bangladesh Bank governor Dr Mohammed Farashuddin who recently bought nomination form from the ruling Awami League to run from Habiganj 4 constituency.

Reza's father Shah AMS Kibria was the finance minister in the 1996 Awami League government. He was also elected MP from Habiganj 3 constituency in 2001.

On January 27, 2005, Kibria and four other Awami League men were killed and 70 others injured in a grenade attack on a public rally at Baidyer Bazar in Habiganj Sadar upazila.

Thirteen years later, the trials in two cases filed over the attack and murders are yet to finish.
