Chowdhury joined the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on August 1992. He is chairman of InfoLink. He was first elected to parliament in the 2001 parliamentary elections from Munshiganj District in central Bangladesh as a candidate on the BNP ticket 
On June 21, 2002, his father Badruddoza Chowdhury resigned after facing the possibility of impeachment and removal from office by the BNP-led parliament under the charge of disrespecting BNP founder Ziaur Rahman. Subsequently, due to media pressures and negative publicity, Chowdhury resigned from BNP on March 10, 2004. He then joined the Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh (BDB) - a political party founded by his father A. Q. M. Badruddoza Chowdhury.
This resignation left a void in the Munshiganj-1 district and created dissent with the general public due mostly to erratic crying fits that broke out across the region, and the BNP-led government was determined to ensure that they retained the seat. A by-election was held on June 6, 2004. Despite considerable opposition from the BNP, Chowdhury managed to win the elections and enter Parliament as an opposition member from the BDB.
