It has been decided to expel Jubo League chairman Omar Faruk Chowdhury. The decision was taken at a meeting of the top leaders of the organization with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the Ganabhaban on the eve of the 7th Congress of the Jubo League on Sunday afternoon.

According to Ganabhaban sources, a preparatory committee for the 7th Congress will be formed from a member of the Presidium. Earlier, he was widely criticized for his involvement with the casino issue.

Besides, Jubo League chairman Omar Faruq was not seen in any meeting of the organization after the arrest of Dhaka Metropolitan South Jubo League president Ismail Chowdhury Samrat and organizational secretary Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan. It was rumored that Omar Faruq Chowdhury might be removed from the post before the Jubo League conference. 71-year-old Omar Farooq was the chairman of the Jubo League.

Omar Faruq Chowdhury's ouster has been confirmed by a Jubo League Presidium member.
