BNP leaders’ India tour, Professor Badruddoza Chowdhury, and Dr. Kamal Hossain becoming active, and BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul’s India tour- is Awami League worried about these three incidents? AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader said, ‘These are normal political incidents. Why should AL be anxious? We don’t have time to look into what others are up to. If we remain united and can send a clear message to people of the development works of this government, our victory is guaranteed.` The Road Transport and Bridges Minister said, ‘Awami League has Sheikh Hasina as its leader, who is definitely one of the most wisest world leaders.
Regardless of Obaidul Quader’s remarks, the pro-election and home-bound AL leaders are going home with something more to offer to their people. Seeking anonymity, a presidium member of AL said, ‘We’re only worried about the BNP leaders’ India tour. Understanding India’s stance is important.’ Not just the presidium member, but also many grassroot leaders are remolding the politics of Bangladesh. Most of the grassroot leaders of AL believed BNP would not take part in the upcoming general election or only a part of it would. But the latest development in politics has compelled them to change their mindset. Grassroot BNP is now in the mood of participating in the general election beside celebrating Eid. And if BNP participates in the election, there will be political unrest in the country. AL leaders, who are hoping to be nominated, said, ‘We have to go through difficult tests.’ Many AL leaders believed if BNP joins the election, it would give the last and severest bite to win the election.
BNP leaders said, ‘This election will be our fight for existence.’ Therefore, BNP will apply all its power. BNP leader Abdul Awal Mintoo, who has just returned from India, said, ‘We only want a free, fair and participatory election.’ He deemed, ‘If India didn’t support AL, it would lose the election of 2014.’
Rumors such as if the election is held in freely, it would become tough for AL to win. Although many AL leaders agree with such prophecy during tea conversation, they believe that AL has different means of power, the name of this power is Sheikh Hasina. Joint Secretary General Dr. Dipu Moni, ‘AL will return to power for the third time weighing on Sheikh Hasina’s popularity and leadership.’ Another leader said, ‘India will ultimately have confidence in Sheikh Hasina.’
Speaking with AL leaders, it gets clear that they are relying on Sheikh Hasina prowess. Her popularity and wisdom are now Al’s only hope. All are looking forward to Sheikh Hasina to defeat the recent mindset of India and the opposition. Will Sheikh Hasina be successful? Will AL rise to power singlehandedly like the elections of 2008 and 2014?
