After failing to win support of the party for mayoral candidate, Dhaka Mohanagar Awami League joint general secretary and independent law maker Haji Salim has gone to India for treatment.
Earlier, he bought the nomination paper for contesting mayoral post from the south of Dhaka city corporation. Sources said the party has advised him to refrain from contesting the election.
"I left Dhaka for Madraj for receiving treatment. After my treatment, I would go to Ajmir Sharif for offering special prayer there," Haji Salim wrote in his facebook status on Thursday noon.
