The ruling Awami League kept the unity of the grand alliance with the highest sacrifice. It has left 70 seats for the alliance partners. To leave these seats, many popular AL aspirants will have to sacrifice. Apart from the seat distribution issue, there are other reasons for what the important leaders of the party have been denied nomination. Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina has personally spoken to them. In the interest of the party, she requested to work for the party.
Responsible sources of Awami League said that the Prime Minister has sent a message to the deprived nomination aspirants, "If the party wins, everything will be reconsidered. But there will be nothing if the party loses the election."
Responsible sources of Awami League said that Sheikh Hasina has kept a number of awards for the deprived. But the condition is that in the election, they will have to work for `boat` symbol in the respective constituencies.
According to sources, the biggest surprise in Awami League nomination list is the exclusion of two joint general secretaries. Responsible sources of Awami League said that one of those who wanted nomination from Faridpur area would be made a presidium member of the party after the election. Another joint secretary who wanted a nomination from a seat in Dhaka, his wife met with the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister has comforted her with the affection of a mother. Awami League sources said that if the party wins, the joint secretary will be given the responsibility of a ministry.
An organizing secretary who was expecting nomination from Madaripur, he has long served as the private secretary of the Awami League President. From 1996 to 2001, he served as Assistant Private Secretary to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. It has been reported that he would be given important responsibility in AL when the party comes to power again. Another organizing secretary of the party did not get the nomination from Shariatpur. It has been reported that he would be given a more important post in the party. Apart from this, the son of late Mohiuddin Ahmed is not getting the nomination from Chittagong-9 constituency due to the seat distribution with the alliance partners. Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury Nowfel is very close to the Prime Minister and she likes him a lot. If AL wins the election, she has planned to give him an important position in the party or government.
Responsible sources of Awami League said that the Prime Minister feels that it is very painful for a politician not to get nominated. Nevertheless, those who will sacrifice for the sake of the party, the party will also reward them too.
