There have been reactions among party leaders and activists over the nominations

Although supporters of aspirants have expressed anger over deprivation of the election ticket, a BNP leader said party leaders and activists will work together for their party candidates.

BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday said: "There have been reactions among party leaders and activists over the nominations, but we are with the candidates who are getting the sheaf of paddy, in the days to come.”

The remark came from the BNP leader speaking at a press conference at BNP's Naya Paltan headquarters in Dhaka, reports UNB.

Earlier in the morning, supporters of BNP International Affairs Secretary and former education minister, Ehsanul Haque Milon, staged a demonstration in front of the party headquarters, protesting BNP’s decision not to nominate Milon for Chandpur 1 constituency.

BNP had nominated its Standing Committee Member, Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, president of the party’s Malaysian chapter, for Chandpur 1 instead of Milon.

Later, the activists locked down the main entrance, with a number of BNP leaders, including Rizvi, trapped inside.

They also took their grievance to Rizvi and expressed their anger as party leader Mosharraf Hossain was given approval from BNP for Chandpur-1 instead of Milon, currently in jail.

On Friday night, late BNP secretary general Khandaker Delwar Hossain's son, Abdul Hamid Dablu and his supporters, demonstrated in front of the BNP chairperson's Gulshan office as SA Jinnah Kabir was given the party nomination for Manikganj-1, instead of Dablu.

At the press conference, Rizvi hoped their chairperson's nomination will be announced valid by the Election Commission after the appeal hearing.

He also called upon the commission to take steps for ensuring a level-playing field and stopping the arrest of opposition leaders and activists.
