I joined AL because I was an idiot: Manna

bdnews24.com :
Mahmudur Rahman Manna thinks it was 'foolish' of him to join the Awami League, but it did not take long for him to realise the 'true colours' of the party.
The Nagorik Oikya convener was speaking at a programme at the National Press Club on Saturday with police
harassment of politicians at ASM Abdur Rab's house on the backdrop two days ago.
"I too was on the boat (Awami League's electoral symbol). Dr Kamal got off the boat, and I boarded it. Does someone do such thing if he is not an idiot?" he said.
Manna was in the Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal when it was formed after breaking away from the Awami League following the independence. He, later, joined BaSaD after JSD suffered a split.  He was elected vice-president of Dhaka University Central Students' Union twice.
