Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives (LGRD) Minister Md. Tajul Islam said the legal aspects of Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) Mayor Jahangir Alam are being reviewed. A decision on his matter will come in a day or two.

He made the remarks while addressing a press conference after the Cabinet meeting on Monday.

Jahangir Alam was expelled from the party last Friday. The party chief Sheikh Hasina has also been directed to take legal action against him for making defamatory comments over the Father of the Nation and distorting the history of the Liberation War.

With his expulsion from the party, Jahangir’s era in Gazipur is coming to an end, however, Awami League joint general secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim told the media yesterday that the central committee has not yet given any decision on Gazipur. 

In such a situation, all the dominance of Jahangir Alam in Gazipur seemed to vanish in an instant. Leaders like Azmat Ullah Khan, AQM Mozammel Haque, Zahid Ahsan Russell are working to reorganize the party in Gazipur.
