Former Awami League MP Golam Maula Rony has joined BNP.
He joined the party at a simple ceremony at BNP chief’s Gulshan office on Monday evening. Later, he received the BNP nomination letter for contesting the general election from Patuakhali 3.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir welcomed Rony to their party, saying their democratic movement will be intensified with his joining.
Speaking on the occasion, Rony said he joined BNP consciously, leaving his party Awami League.
“I will use all my intellect to serve the country and nationalist politics,” he said.
Rony was elected Awami League’s MP from Patuakhali 3 in 2008. He went to jail in 2014 in a case of assaulting two journalists. The case was later scrapped.
