Ashraful Islam Alam alias Hiro Alam said that the conspiracy has been done to him by canceling his nomination papers.

He said, “I will not leave the election field with such conspiracy. I will appeal. Earlier I said, I will be in the field till the last day, so I remain firm on the decision.”

Hiro Alam went to the Election Commission (EC) office to appeal against the cancellation of nomination papers. He went to EC at 3:30 pm on Monday.

Earlier, the social networking star was told Daily Bangladesh that he was going to ECI. Returning Officer rejected his nomination papers on Sunday.

Meanwhile, appearing for an appeal against the cancellation of his candidacy in the Election Commission, Hiro Alam said, “The area has got the air of hero Alam. Therefore, candidacy has been canceled due to the Hiro Alam’s popularity.”

In the Bogura-4 (Kahalu-Nandigram) constituency, 16 nominations were filed including Hero Alam. Among them, seven nominations were canceled including his on the selection day. He submitted nomination papers as an independent candidate for the seat. Bogura’s returning officer and DC Foyez Ahmad said this.

The Returning Officer informed, “If someone wants to be a candidate or if they want to be elected, one percent voter’s signature will be filed with the nomination papers. But his nomination papers did not have the signature of the voter.”

As Hero Alam didn’t get the nomination from HM Ershad’s Jatiay Party (JaPa), he submitted his nomination as an independent candidate for the Bogura-4 constituency.

After the cancellation of the nomination papers, Hero Alam said, “The nomination papers were canceled by conspiracy. I submitted by maintaining all the rules. But the conspiracy has been done against me.”
