A letter signed by Naldanga Upazila Awami League President Abdus Shukur and General Secretary Mushfiqur Rahman Muku announced the decision on Saturday night.
Jibon, 21, who was allegedly beaten up by Natore's Naldanga upazila Chairman Asaduzzaman Asad on September 19, died at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH) on Friday.
