Zahangir Alam has been suspended from the mayoral post of Gazipur City Corporation (GCC).

Tajul Islam, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD), revealed the information during a press conference.

Earlier in the day, a three-member panel was formed for the city corporation.

Zahangir Alam, the general secretary and mayor of the ruling Awami League's Gazipur municipal unit, was expelled for life on charges of uttering disrespectful remarks about Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and martyred freedom fighters.

There were also allegations against Zahangir about solely controlling everything in the city corporation.

For instance, he had not formed a three-member mayor panel in accordance with the city law even after three years of taking the charge. Many alleged that he has not done so for his own benefit.
