Declaring him persona non-grata in Kachua upazila, a group of women on Friday brought out a broom procession against Awami League-nominated candidate in Chandpur-1 constituency Golam Hossain. 

The procession, led by female affairs secretary of upazila AL Rownak Ara Ratna, Mohila AL upazila unit president Salma Sahid and its general secretary Taslima Chowdhury, started from in front of the upazila AL office in the afternoon.

It ended at Kachua bypass road after parading the main roads of the upazila headquarters.

Later, the processionists burned Golam Hossain, also former chairman of National Board of Revenue, in effigy.

Speaking on the occasion, Ratna said Golam Hossain has a connection with the upazila Awami League. “Leaders and activists of upazila AL and its associate bodies won’t accept anyone except Dr Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir in this seat,” she said.

The ruling party handed out nomination papers to both Mohiuddin and Golam Hossain for contesting the upcoming general election from Chandpur-1 (Kachua) constituency.

Both of them also filed nomination papers to the returning officer.
