The internal feud between two Awami League leaders of Narayanganj AKM Shamim Osman and Dr Selina Hayat Ivy has been prevailing for last eighteen years. The two leaders and their supporters are still blaming each other.  

AKM Shamim Osman is ruling party’s MP from Narayanganj-4 constituency, while Dr Selina Hayat Ivy is elected mayor of NCC with Awami League’s ticket. Awami League high-ups were embarrassed and aggrieved different times for conflict between two influential leaders of Narayanganj.  

They were engaged in conflict again. In meeting at Narayanganj Police Lines on on January 1, AKM Shamim Osman spoke against Dr Selina Hayat Ivy. 

Without mentioning anybody’s name but hinting at Shamim Osman, Dr Selina Hayat Ivy at a meeting marking Taqi’s death anniversary said that she does not fear anyone.

Almost forty years ago, such kind of internal conflict was prevailing between Ivy’s father Ali Ahmed Chunka and Shim Osman’s father AKM Shamsuzzoha although they were leaders of Awami League.
