DHAKA: Popular singer Monir Khan has resigned from BNP after being rejected of party nomination to contest in the 11th parliamentary elections. 

He stepped down as BNP’s central committee co-cultural affairs secretary on Sunday (Dec 9).

The singer was aspired to run in the national elections from Jhenaidah-3 constituency.

He even received a letter from the party confirming nomination initially. But, he was dropped as BNP shared the seat with a Jamaat candidate.

An aggrieved Monir Khan made the announcement of his resignation at a press briefing Sunday afternoon.

BNP sources said Jhenaidah District Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh Secretary Matiar Rahamn will run for the constituency.
