BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday said their party is taking preparations for holding its 7th national council.
“We’re preparing for our next council, and we’ve already started our activities, including reorganising our district units, for it,” he said.
Fakhrul came up with the disclosure while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave together with party’s two newly-appointed standing committee members — Selima Rahman and Iqbal Hasan Mahmud Tuku.
He said Selima and Tuku have been made BNP standing committee members to fill the vacant posts in the party’s highest policymaking body. “They’ve been appointed as per our constitutions recognising their contributions to party for a long time. They also have a positive image among people.”
After over three years of the party national council, BNP on Wednesday announced that Selima and Tuku were appointed its standing committee members.
BNP’s sixth national council was held on March 19, 2016.
