Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said Jamalpur zila  AL called a meeting over Murad issue and he was informed that Murad would be removed from his post. Replying to a question whether Murad's preliminary membership of the party  will be cancelled, he said, "We will decide to this end centrally. We will ecide in the next AL working committee meeting."

"The way we took decisions about Gazipur city mayor and its city AL  general secretary, we will take final decision about Murad in the next  working committee meeting. Such decision cannot be taken without a working  committee meeting," the AL general secretary said.

About Murad's parliament membership, he said this issue will be  considered later and the Speaker will decide to this end.
