Bangladesh Reconditioned Vehicles Importers and Dealers Association (Barvida) has suspended SM Anwar Sadat for one year from the post of general member and vice president-1 of the association, according to a press release.
Anwar Sadat was expelled on July 26 by unanimous vote of the 8th regular meeting of the Executive Council of the Association.
The current (2019-2021) executive committee of the Barvida was elected in the biennial election held on July 26, 2019 and took charge of the association on August 5 of the year, the press release added.
Since taking office, Anwar Sadat has been disrespecting the esteemed members of the council through various activities.
