National Awami Party (Bhashani)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

National Awami Party (Bhashani) is a left wing political party in Bangladesh.


National Awami Party (Bhashani) was established on 30 November 1967 when National Awami Party split into two different fractions. The pro-Moscow fraction was National Awami Party (Wali), led by Khan Abdul Wali Khan, and the pro-Beijing was called National Awami Party (Bhashani), led by Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani. On 17 November 1974, two leaders of the party, Kazi Zafar Ahmed and Rashed Khan Menon, formed a new political party called United People's Party. Following this split, Bhashani resigned from post of Party President.[1][2]
