BCB President Mr. Nazmul Hasan Papon announced his eligibility in the election. He expressed his decision after a meeting with the representatives of district and divisional sports associations on Thursday.
Earlier former head of BCB Mr. Saber Hossain Chowdhury also announced his decision of participating in the upcoming BCB election. It is now a twofold battle between the former and present presidents of the board.
Nazmul held a marathon meeting of 5 hours about election. All 32 members who were present gave their support towards the current head of BCB.
Chittagong district Sport’s Association representative A. Z. M. Nasir condemned the persons who made criticisms about the forum. He said, “We are fully supporting Papon & expecting that there will be a fair enough election. We are blaming those who are trying to upset the election process.”
After the press conference Mr. Nazmul reassured his participation, “I’m bound to participate in the election now. Some people are trying to make chaos in the election process.”
But he did not give any hints about the date of election.
