Awami League has decided to follow the Father of the Nation’s tactics after the upcoming council of the party. To concentrate on the organizational activities more and strengthen the organization, the Father of the Nation believed on an idea that the central committee leaders must not be the ministers. They must give their time to the party. Bangabandhu sheikh Mujibur Rahman himself resigned from the ministry and served the party as the general secretary. However, due to circumstances, the step did not move further. At present, AL is the strongest organization in political arena and has been elected as the country’s ruling power for three consecutive terms. AL president thinks that the time has come to implement the dream of the Father of the Nation. That is why she is now seeking a general secretary beyond the ministerial level.
According to sources, AL president has talked to many senior leaders over the matter. If the decision is finalized, Obaidul Quader will have to quit either the post of the minister or the general secretary of the party. PM has decided to leave the decision on him. AL’s central executive committee will sit on a meeting today. If the matter is not discussed in the meeting today; it will be soon before the council as PM herself will talk to Obaidul Quader to know his decision. The final decision, in this regard, will be taken based on Quader’s opinion as the sources have confirmed.
