The much-talked-about social media star Ashraful Hossain Alam – referred to as Hero Alam by his fans—now wants to contest in Bogura-6 by-election with Jatiya Party ticket.
He confirmed the matter to media on Saturday evening saying, "I am a resident of Erulia in Sadar Upazila of Bogura, so I would like to contest from this constituency in the upcoming by-election."He said, “I have already sought nomination from Jatiya Party. I think the party must consider my popularity. If I fail to get nomination from my party, I will run the race as an independent candidate.”
Earlier in the December's 11th parliamentary election, he struck media headlines contesting as independent candidate from Bogra 4 – Kahalu-Nandigram – constituency.
