BNP leader MK Anwar passes away
BNP standing committee member and former minister MK Anwar died in the early hours of Tuesday at his Elephant Road residence in the city. He was 85.
Anwar, a bureaucrat-turned politician breathed his last around 1:20 am, said BNP chairperson’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan.
He said the veteran BNP leader had long been suffering from diabetics, heart disease and various old age complications.
Anwar is survived by two sons and a daughter to mourn his death.
He retired from the government service in 1990 after discharging the duty of the Cabinet Secretary.
Anwar joined BNP in 1991 and was elected MP from Comilla’s Homna constituency for several times.
