Seven members of parliament (MPs) of BNP announced their resignation from parliament on Saturday as per the decision of the party’s Standing Committee.
BNP International Affairs Secretary Rumeen Farhana announced the decision from the party’s Golapbagh rally Saturday afternoon.
She said the MPs sent their resignation through email and will physically submit those to the speaker on Sunday.
“We do not have any benefit to staying as MPs. We joined parliament to see how much space we get. But it is, all the same, to have the membership and not, so we have announced the resignation,” she said.
Earlier, the party MPs were asked to resign from parliament as the party will announce a 10-point demand including dissolution of parliament from Saturday’s rally.
BNP is holding the rally from where the party will announce their demands for launching a simultaneous movement.
