AL central council, BCL top on agenda

AL Central Working Committee meet today
Abu Jakir, Dhaka
AL central council, BCL 
top on agenda

The Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC), the highest policymaking body of the ruling party, will meet today to focus on its 21st central council session, likely to be held in November. Insiders said the party’s coming national council session will be the main subject of discussion at the meeting, as it is supposed to be held in October.

The party president and Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, is yet to give any direction to her central leaders on the issue.

Party leaders hope that their chief will give instructions to hold the 21st national council session at the meeting, and may fix the date of the council.

Sheikh Hasina will chair the meeting to be held at her official residence, Gono Bhaban, in the city at 7pm today. The issue of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), student wing of the AL, may also be discussed, said insiders.

The BCL leadership is making news headlines again for its controversial acts. Sheikh Hasina, who is the BCL's organisational chief, has instructed the party's central leaders to dissolve the current committee. The BCL has become the main topic of discussion within the ruling partym as well as in newspapers and television channels. Therefore,  leaders and workers of the BCL and AL are eagerly waiting for the next instruction of Sheikh Hasina.

According to party insiders, the AL president has issued directives for dissolution of the current BCL committee after expressing her dissatisfaction over the role of organisation president, Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon, and general secretary, Golam Rabbani.

The other agendas of the meeting are: chalking out programmes on Sheikh Hasina’s 72nd birthday and 55th birth anniversary of Sheikh Russel, youngest son of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The country’s prevailing political situation will also come up.      

Talking to this correspondent yesterday (Friday), AL general secretary Obaidul Quader said: "We will discuss the party’s organisational issue at Saturday’s ALCWC meeting, where many other things may be come. We will mainly discuss the party’s coming national council session. The party chief Sheikh Hasina may give instructions.”

When contacted, AL office secretary Abdus Sobhan Golap said: “The party’s organisational matter will be discussed at the meeting. The BCL issue may come up if any leader raises it. The meeting will focus on the party council.

The organising secretaries will inform the body about the updated information of district and upazila committees of the party.”

Party sources said the organising secretaries will submit reports on the internal feud exposed during upazila elections across the country.  The party has started issuing show-cause notices to those who contested against party nominated candidates in the recently held local government elections.

AL insiders said this time Sheikh Hasina may make major changes in the party’s central body at the coming national council session, as no major changes were made in the last three national council sessions.

In the earlier ALCWC meeting at Gono Bhaban, the party president and Prime Minister had said she wants to hold her party’s national council session in time in a bid to strengthen the organisation.

Earlier, the Bangladesh Awami League held its 20th national council session on October 22 and 23, 2016 at the city’s historical Suhrawardi Udyan.

As the party is in power for the third consecutive time, this time also the party is working to hold a colourful, prestigious and unprecedented council session, said insiders.
