MNA Editorial Desk: The two rival leaders of Chittagong city Awami League, ABM Mahiuddin Chowdhury and AJM Nasir Uddin, shared the same stage and joined hands during a programme on the historic Mujibnagar Day on Monday.
President of the unit, Mahiuddin, at the end of his speech, called out the unit general secretary, Nasir, who was seated on the stage, to the dais.
When Nasir arrived, the ex-mayor took his hand, raised it, and announced, “We don’t have any differences. We’ll work together for the party. You, too, will do the same.”
Mohiuddin and the incumbent mayor, Nasir, had been exchanging heated words at public rallies, meetings, and media for around two years.
Earlier on April 10 at a rally at Laldighi, Mahiuddin termed incompetent and urge Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, to remove the mayor. Mahiuddin also alleged that Nasir killed at least 12 people at times.
In reply, Nasir on April 11 told reporters that Mohiuddin was talking nonsense as he was out of power.
