In the press conference, Gazi Mohammad Shahed said, ‘In the 12th National Parliament election, I have submitted nomination for the post of an independent candidate from Habiganj-1 Nabiganj-Bahubal Constituency. Later my nomination was validated and I was awarded the truck symbol. I also started my election campaign.’
Shahed said, ‘But due to the current physical illness, the death of my elder brother’s daughter, one of my brothers and a brave freedom fighter uncle, I am also mentally disturbed. As a result, it is physically and mentally not possible for me to vote, so I withdrew from the 12th National Assembly elections.’
Gazi Shahed said, “I and my family are eternally indebted to you.” My late father public leader Dewan Farid Gazi stood by the people of Nabiganj-Bahubal i.e. Dinarpur pargana until his death. We have always been by your side, we will be in the future.’
