Khaleda before her arrest made a major change in the party- she dismissed Mannan Bhuiyan as the General Secretary and Ashraf Hussain as the Joint Secretary of the party and declared Khondokaer delwar Hussain as the new General Secretary of the party.

Mannan Bhuiyan and  Ashraf Hussain both rejected the dismissal as unconstitutional and asserted that they are very much in the party. Rather Mannan Bhuiyan and his associates are claiming that they are representing the mainstream of the party. On the otherhand, Khondoker Delwar Hussain and his associates are saying that Mannan Bhuiyan and Ashref Hussain are no more in the party and they are representing the party.

Khondoker Delwar Hussain fraction also submitted a letter to the Election Commission that citing the BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s decision of recent changes in the party. The letter was signed by Asstt. General Secretary and submitted along with other documents.
