District Awami League joint general secretary Shamim Ahmad Chowdhury will fight as an independent candidate in Sunamganj-5 seat in the 12th national parliament elections. However, on the first page of the candidate’s affidavit, in the self-identification section, after the name of the parents, a section is written – ‘Willing to contest as a Jatiya Party candidate from the constituency.’

A wide discussion is going on in the electoral area including social media. However, Awami League leader Shamim denied the matter. He claimed that the issue of being a candidate from Jatiya Party was added by editing the copy of the affidavit by conspiracy.

However, the copy which has been spread in various places including social media, has been found from the office of the District Returning Officer.

Awami League’s nomination in Sunamganj-5 seat was contested by several candidates. However, this time also the current member of parliament and Sunamganj district Awami League vice president Muhibur Rahman Manik has been nominated. And Shamim Ahmad Chowdhury submitted his nomination to the office of Chatak Upazila Assistant Returning Officer to be elected as an independent candidate without getting party nomination. The nomination paper of Shamim Ahmed Chowdhury has also been validated. Recently, when the affidavits of all the candidates of the district were collected from the district returning officer’s office, it was noticed that Shamim Ahmad Chowdhury was a candidate from the Jatiya Party in the affidavit.

However, Shamim Ahmad Chowdhury denied the matter and said, ‘I and my family are involved in Awami League politics. Why should I write about the National Party in the affidavit? Seeing my popularity, there is a conspiracy against me and this article has been edited and presented.’

Shamim Ahmad Chowdhury sought nomination of Awami League in 2018 election as well. He still did not get the party nomination. He is currently serving as the Joint General Secretary of Sunamganj District Awami League. Before that, he was the information and research affairs secretary of the district Awami League.
