Asadur Rahman took the charge of new acting mayor Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) on Sunday.

Earlier on Thursday at a press conference at the Secretariat, Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives (LGRD) Minister Tajul Islam said Mohammad Jahangir Alam, who was expelled from the Awami League, has been suspended from the post of GCC mayor.

At that time, he said, many allegations had been lodged against Jahangir Alam. They have been taken into account for proper investigation. He has been suspended in the interest of proper investigation as per the provisions of the law.

The ruling Awami League expelled GCC mayor Jahangir Alam, who was also the general secretary of the Gazipur metropolitan Awami League, from the party on November 19 for his controversial remarks about Bangabandhu and the martyrs of the Liberation War. 

The Awami League was informed on Thursday that joint general secretary Ataullah Mandal would be given the charge of acting general secretary there.
