His family members are involved in everything from reckless occupation, extortion, harassment, torture, recruitment trade to commission trade in his constituency Patiya. He has repeatedly been controversial about all this; Anger and dissatisfaction have been created in the party forum itself. But he did not care about anything.

Thousands of Awami League leaders and supporters have fallen victim to his occupation, aggression and arrogance.
