Photo: Prothom AloFormer Awami League minister and independent candidate from Tangail-4 constituency Abdul Latif Siddique’s motorcade came under attack during campaign on Sunday.Latif Siddiqui alleged that supporters of Awami League candidate there Hasan Imam Khan carried out the attack in the afternoon.Latif, a former presidium member of the AL, staged a sit-in demonstration in front of Tangail deputy commissioner’s office, in protest against the attack and sought punishment of the attackers.He allehed that a group of AL men led by Gohaliabari union parishad chairman Hazrat Ali Talukder swooped on his motorcade when he was carrying out campaign.At one stage of the incident, Latif Siddiqui and his supporters took shelter at former UP chairmen Mohir Uddin’s house, where they were attacked for the second time.At least four vehicles of the motorcade were vandalised and several activists of Latif Siddique got injured in the attack.Latif then went to Tangail town and submitted a written complaint to the deputy commission who is the returning officer. The candidate demanded withdrawal of the officer-in-charge of Kalihati police station and punishment of the attackers.When asked about complaints of his supporters’ complicity in the attack, AL candidate and current member of parliament Hasan Imam denied.The AL candidate, however, said: “Activists of the Awami League attacked Latif Siddique as he made derogatory remarks about the prime minister and Awami League [Sheikh Hasina],” he said.Deputy commissioner of Tangail Md Shahidul Islam said the authorities would take appropriate measures against the attackers following investigation into the incident.Latif Siddiqui was elected MP from Kalihati in 2008 and 2014 and served as member of prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s cabinet since 2009. Following his derogatory remarks about Hajj pilgrimage while addressing a meeting in New York in 2014, he was removed from the cabinet and the ruling AL. He resigned from the post of member of parliament in 2015.
