Nazim Uddin Ahmed, a freedom fighter and MP from Mymensingh-3 (Gouripur), has threatened to commit suicide by self-poisoning if the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) regains power.

On Saturday evening, the Awami League MP addressed a gathering in the Master Bari section of Bhutiyarkona village in Mymensingh’s Gouripur upazila, where he was campaigning for his party in the next parliamentary election.

“The BNP martyred 3 million people and violated the honor of 200,000 women,” stated the freedom fighter. If they retake control, I shall commit suicide in front of you by ingesting poison as a freedom warrior.”

“I don’t want to live if I hear the boat (the Awami League’s electoral symbol) has lost and Khaleda Zia has won.” “There’s no reason for me to live,” he explained.

“If you do not vote for the boat, you will be betraying the nation, the 3 million martyrs, and the honor of 200,000 women.” As a result, I encourage you to vote for the boat in the upcoming election, giving Sheikh Hasina another chance and preventing war criminals Al-Badr and Khaleda Zia from regaining power,” he implored voters.
