The Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives has suspended the Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) Mayor Jahangir Alam, informed Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives (LGRD) Minister Tajul Islam on Thursday.

An audio of Mayor Jahangir Alam went viral on social media last September where he was seen making some harsh comments. 

After the audio spread widely, leaders and activists of the Awami League and allied organizations in Gazipur accused Jahangir Alam of violating party discipline. They also staged a protest against him at that time.

In such a situation, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader had issued a show-cause notice against Jahangir Alam for his activities against the interests of the party and breach of organizational discipline. 

After receiving the reply to that notice, Jahangir Alam was expelled from the Awami League. Now, he was also suspended from the post of mayor.
