Md Shahidul Islam Chowdhury, who was appointed as Meherpur Deputy Commissioner (DC) just a week ago, has been dropped his position. Instead, Agriculture Minster's personal secretary Mohammad Mansur Alam Khan has been made new DC of Meherpur district.
The Ministry of Public Administration issued an order on Thursday appointing Mohammad Mansur Alam as new DC.
At the same time, the transfer order of Md Shahidul Islam Chowdhury, deputy secretary of Cabinet Division, was cancelled.
On June 25 last, the government appointed new deputy commissioners in nine districts, including Dhaka, in a reshuffle in the administration.
But, Md Shahidul Islam Chowdhury who was appointed as Meherpur DC, was allegedly involved in politics of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), the student wing of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) at Bangladesh Agriculture University in Mymensingh. His name came under discussion on social media.
As controversy was raised over the appointment of Shahidul Islam Chowdhury, he was subsequently dropped and Mansur Alam was appointed to that post.
