Narayanganj, Oct 27 (bdnews24.com)—Ruling MP Sarah Begum Kabori has taken part in Narayanganj mayor candidate Selina Hayat Ivy's campaign.
She asked the residents of Shiddhirganj wards 1 and 2 on Thursday afternoon to vote for the Narayanganj Awami League vice-president.
"Ivy is a tested leader. She has done much development during her time as the municipality mayor," Kabori told reporters.
"Narayanganj needs Ivy for its development," she said.
The electoral code prohibits anyone but the electorate from being in Narayanganj after Thursday midnight.
Ivy's rival candidate Shamim Osman, a former Awami League MP, with whom Kabari also has a longstanding feud, secured the party's support for Narayanganj City Corporation's first election.
Votes will be held in the city on Oct 30.
Asked why she was lending Ivy her support though her party was backing Shamim, Kabori replied that to her, Shamim and Ivy were both Awami League politicians.
All five parliament seats in Narayanganj district are taken by Awami League. Kabari is the only MP of the five to not join Shamim's campaign and to support Ivy's candidacy.
Metropolitan Awami League president Anwar Hossain was present with Ivy and Kabari during the campaign.
