Sheikh Hasina warns AL leaders not to engage in internal feuds
Prime Minister and the ruling party Awami League President, Sheikh Hasina has sounded a note of warning to those who are engaging in internal disputes. “I do not want to hear one person complaining against another. Everyone should refrain from engaging in internal feuds,” said Sheikh Hasina while addressing a meeting of Awami League Parliamentary Party at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban last Wednesday. Stating that the candidates will be nominated for constituencies based on their popularity, the Awami League chief revealed that surveys are being conducted at six-month intervals to seek out suitable candidates for the 11th general polls. She also added that once a candidate is nominated, other party leaders and activists must lend their full support to that person. A lawmaker present in the meeting claimed that a certain quarter is conspiring against the government and Sheikh Hasina, and if another political crisis similar to 1-11 occurs, AL leaders will have to go into hiding, an insider source told the Bangla Tribune. According to the insider, Sheikh Hasina replied that confidence is the key to everything, and then told the lawmaker not to engage in activities that could force that person to leave the country. The prime minister then said: “We have come this far by tackling conspiracies against us. There will be more conspiracies, and we must tackle them to move forward.” She also instructed the party leaders to visit the voters door to door. “Because of their history of violent politics, BNP and Jamaat will not get many votes. Awami League must showcase the achievements of this government. The people have every reason to vote for the Awami League because of the development projects carried out in the past few years.” The insider source also added that several lawmakers complained to the party chief that a number of AL leaders are damaging the party’s unity by canvassing in the same constituency. Replying to the complaint, Sheikh Hasina said she supports those who are reaching out to the people in their areas. However, she asked everyone not to speak ill of another. “I will not give nominations on face value. I have my own scale of measuring the capability of candidates. We are doing regular surveys at six-month intervals to evaluate aspirants,” the Awami League president said while concluding the meeting. The 90-minute meeting, chaired by the prime minister, was attended by Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed, Housing and Public Works Minister Engineer Mosharraf Hossain, Whip Atiur Rahman Atik and several lawmakers.
