AL plans big from 
next week

Ruling Awami League (AL), which is already in various programmes to drum up support for the party, will go for countrywide pre-election campaign in full swing with the party chief addressing a public rally in Shibchar upazila of Madaripur next week. The rally will be held at Kathalbari bus stand in Shibchar on October 13 and it will coincide with the Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina visiting the progress of the Padma Bridge project, some central leaders of the party said.

Talking to The Independent, AL central leader Iqbal Hossain Apu said Sheikh Hasina will address a public rally that day.

“Our preparation has already been completed and I hope the public rally will see a huge turnout,” he added. The AL president had formally started the pre-polls campaign from Sylhet on January 30 and her party’s central leaders had also started organisational tours across the country in a bid to strengthen the party before the next polls.

As part of the party’s election campaign, the Premier has already visited Barisal, Chandpur, Chittagong, Khulna, Jessore and Thakurgaon and addressed public rallies there. She urged people to vote for her party symbol ‘boat’ in the upcoming polls.

Meanwhile, leaders of the AL-led 14-Party Alliance are planning to visit their different organisational districts across the country ahead of the general election scheduled to be held this year end. As part of their plan, the ruling alliance will hold rallies in Rajshahi on October

9, Natore on October 10 and Khulna on October 13.

The ruling alliance also plans to hold a “grand rally” in the capital this month. However, the date of the grand rally would be announced later.

In a bid to make their upcoming programmes a success, AL presidium member and 14-party coordinator Mohammad Nasim yesterday held a meeting with the alliance partners at the party’s Dhanmondi office.

AL general secretary Obaidul Quader and other central leaders started the party’s week-long mass contact programmes in the city from the beginning of this month. They sought votes for the party by distributing leaflets among city residents.

An AL delegation, led by Quader, had also conducted the party’s pre-election campaign in the name of organisational tours last month in the country’s northern and south-eastern districts.

The AL high-ups have directed party MPs, leaders and workers to highlight the government’s development works to the countrymen from their respective positions and seek votes for the party in the next polls, insiders said.

Besides, the ruling party also plans to stay on the streets till the next general election to prevent BNP-Jamaat members from resorting to any subversive activities ahead of the polls.

AL presidium member Mohammad Nasim said no one will be allowed to create anarchy ahead of the upcoming general elections.

“We will see who will take to the streets and create anarchy in the country ahead of the next polls. For the next one month, we don’t have any work except to resist conspirators who try to create anarchy,” he added.

Nasim, who is also the health minister, said the leaders and workers of the AL-led 14-Party Alliance will keep control of every inch of soil of Bangladesh ahead of the next polls.
