BARISHAL, June 04 (UNB): Nineteen BNP leaders including former Chhatra Dal leader Quamrul Ahsan Rupon, have been expelled for life for contesting the upcoming Barishal City Corporation election defying the party's decision to boycott all polls under the incumbent government.

The matter was confirmed through a letter signed by BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Sunday.

According to the letter sent to Quamrul Ahsan Rupon, on June 2, BNP served a show cause notice to Quamrul for participating in the Barishal City Corporation Election slated for June 12 ignoring party's decision.

But as his response was not satisfactory, the central committee of BNP stamped him as 'Mir Zafar' and decided to expel him from the party for life.
