He was previously removed from the local unit of the ruling party in February and the decision was revoked in no time
In a surprising move, Basurhat municipality mayor Abdul Quader Mirza has announced his resignation from his party, Awami League.
In a Facebook post at 12:35 pm on Wednesday, the ruling party leader said: “I’m stepping down as a member of the Companiganj upazila unit of Awami League.”
At the same time, Mirza also pledged that he would not take part in any local body election and that he will never take charge of a partisan post again.

Mirza, also the younger brother of Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Secretary Obaidul Quader, has been making the headlines since he launched his municipal polls race in Noakhali’s Companyganj upazila.
He has since been accusing some central leaders of the ruling party, including his brother Obaidul, and even the local administration of thwarting his efforts to win the election held on January 16.
On February 22, hours after relieving Mirza from all the activities of the party and recommending his expulsion for reportedly violating the party rules, the Noakhali district unit of Awami League retreated from the decision.
The unit’s president and general secretary then made conflicting comments about his removal.
Additionally, on March 23 in a live Facebook post, he threatened that he might commit suicide if the Awami League general secretary kept on what he termed “hatching conspiracies” against him.
Mentionable, he has been involved with the Companiganj upazila unit of Awami League for the past 27 years.
