Busy schedule ahead for AL

Abu Jakir, Dhaka
Busy schedule ahead for AL

The ruling Awami League (AL) has three major tasks lined up for the next few months. These include holding the party’s 21st national council session in December, making preparations for the upcoming city corporation elections and celebrating the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The party has formed eight teams comprising central leaders to chalk out different programmes to celebrate Bangabandhu’s birth centenary and to hold councils for the party units in the districts, upazilas and thanas ahead of the national council session on December 20-21. The party has also held meetings on making Bangabandhu’s birth centenary celebrations a grand success.

The AL chief, Sheikh Hasina, has instructed her political advisor HT Imam to plan detail programmes for the central and all divisional, district and upazila committees to observe ‘Mujib Year’ across the country. Besides, two national committees were formed in this regard, with one committee for Mujib year celebration and another for implementation, sources said.

Speaking to The Independent, AL acting general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said the government and the AL have separately made elaborate preparations to celebrate Mujib Year.

Hanif also said that the AL high-ups have directed the party’s eight organising secretaries to give the necessary instructions to the district leaders across the country on celebrating Mujib Year. “Besides, we will remain busy with some major tasks such as holding the party’s national council and making preparations for the city polls,” he added.

On Saturday, the party held its central working committee meeting at Ganabhaban and unanimously decided to hold its national council session on December 20 and 21. In that meeting, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina instructed her party leaders to complete all pending council sessions of the district and thana-level units by December 10.

Earlier, AL had held its 20th national council session on October 22 and 23, 2016, at the historical Suhrawardi Udyan in the capital.

As the party has come back to power for the third consecutive time, AL plans to hold a

colourful, prestigious and unprecedented council session this time, said insiders. AL organising secretary BM Mozammel Haque said their first task now was to make the party’s upcoming council session a grand success. “As per the directives of our party president, we are now busy with the task of completing pending council sessions to all party units and the task will have to complete by December 10,” he added.

“At the same time, we will take up the necessary tasks to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu. You know the celebration programmes will be observed at all levels. So, we will have to face a serious hurdle in the next few months,” he noted.

Meanwhile, the AL president has also directed her party central leaders to make preparations to contest the upcoming twin Dhaka city corporations that are likely to be held in January 2020.

Party insiders said Sheikh Hasina has also instructed the central leaders to gather information for selecting the best candidates who are dedicated and popular for the upcoming city polls.

Talking to The Independent, AL presidium member Lt Col (Retd) Muhammad Faruk Khan said they have started a survey of party candidates. Those who are popular and dedicated to the party would be nominated for the mayoral and councillor positions in the city polls, he added.

“You know, elections at the three city corporations—DNCC, DSCC and Chattogram City Corporation—will be held within the next five or six months. That’s why we are preparing for them from now itself,” he added.
