BNP acting chairperson Tarique Rahman joined the nomination board using a telecommunication app as the party started interviewing its nomination seekers for the upcoming national elections for the fourth consecutive day on Wednesday.
The interview of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party nomination aspirants will conclude with today’s interview at BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s Gulshan office, reports UNB.
The party nomination board, comprising BNP standing committee members, started the interview with those who bought nomination forms for Mymensingh and Faridpur districts at 10:00am.

Though the authorities concerned blocked telecommunication application Skype on Monday the nomination seekers who faced interview said Tarique joined the board on Tuesday as previous days using another application.
