About two and a half years after the death of his first wife, Railway Minister Md. Nurul Islam Sujon is going to tie the knot again.

The Railway Minister told the media on Thursday that he would officially announce the matter once everything was finalized. However, the issue of marriage has come a long way, the minister said.

Nurul Islam’s wife Nilufar Jahan died in December 2018, just before the 11th parliamentary election. They have one son and two daughters. All three children are married.  

Born on January 5, 1956, in Panchagarh, Nurul Islam, 65, was elected as a member of the 9th, 10th and 11th Jatiya Sangsad from Panchagarh-2 (Boda-Debiganj) constituency. 

After being elected as a Member of Parliament for the third time in the 11th Parliamentary Election in 2018, he joined the Cabinet as the Minister of Railways.

Mujibul Haque was the Railway Minister in the last term of the ruling Awami League government. After becoming a minister, he got married which was the first marriage of Mujibul Haque.
