But if you want, I will ask for nominations from Noakhali-4 and Noakhali-5. The rest will be decided by the Prime Minister. If you allow me to be nominated, show me your hand. ‘
Addressing Obaidul Quader, he said, ‘I have given you a place after my father. But you couldn’t hold on. Your own brother, in his words you removed me from the post of general secretary. You just didn’t leave me out. The whole Noakhali Awami League has ravaged the family. Today he has been made the convener. Just expelled, expelled as convener. Hey, how much will you expel? ‘
