Former finance minister and Awami League leader Shah AMS Kibria's son Reza Kibria is set to participate in the upcoming 11th parliamentary elections under the banner of Jatiya Oikyafront. 

“My father (Shah AMS Kibria) had dreamt of contesting polls from Habiganj-1 constituency. I want to fulfill his dream. Besides, I want to contribute to development of this neglected area,” Dr Reza, an economist, told UNB.

He took the final decision over contesting the polls on Friday and joined Gono Forum of Dr Kamal Hossain.

Five people, including Kibria, were killed and 70 others injured in a grenade attack on a public rally of local Awami League at Baidder Bazar in Sylhetsadar upazila on January 27, 2005.
