A video-clip of him urging for cash in megaphone during the function on Friday has gone viral on internet.
Speaking to bdnews24.com on Saturday, Feroz said that he had asked for the money not for himself but for the party.
The video shows the Chief Whip receiving crests at the local Awami League organised reception at Patuakhali's Baufal Upazila on Friday.
"I will be at the party office from 9am to 3pm tomorrow (Saturday), if anyone wishes to give any present then don’t bring crest. Bring cash; cash," is what Feroz was seen saying in the video.
"Don't you understand, it takes a lot (of money) to participate in the elections. So, give cash, that'd be great. See you all tomorrow. I will not take any more crests today," he added.
