In Rajshahi, the Islamic movement started a heated debate around Bangladesh. The leaders of the organization blasted BNP and Awami League on the upcoming Rajshahi City Corporation (RASIK) election issue. This is a heated political field. Charmonai Pir’s organization has been accused of conspiring with the rulers. However, many residents of the city do not know the ‘Hatpakha’ symbol of the organization. The organization is unknown to politicians and the candidate himself is the mayor!
It is known that Islami Andolan Bangladesh has formed a 23-member election coordination committee in view of the Rajshahi city elections. Tarif Uddin, president of the metropolitan branch of the organization, is in charge of the coordinator. And Hafez Maulana Murshid Alam Farooqui, vice president of the metropolitan committee, has been nominated for the post of mayor. Recently these two leaders blasted Awami League and BNP.
In a special interview given to Bhor paper on the Rasik election issue, they said, ‘There are some good people in Awami League and BNP, who want a change. It is because of this change that they want Islamic movement Bangladesh. That’s why they will vote by hand.’
These two leaders claimed, ‘we have seen in the last election too, many people may have campaigned on boats or campaigned with BNP; But the vote gave us. Those who are doing Awami League for some reason or BNP for some reason, they can do it because of their interest, they can also do it to save their jobs. Many people from this class will vote or support us this time.’
However, they avoided the issue without giving a yes or no answer to the question of whether they want the votes of the supporters of the left party.
A heated debate has started in the city around their statement. Some people think that it can be a strategy to create a vote bank.
Claiming that these statements are misleading, the Jubo League has announced that it will take a strong stand on the streets. Mahmud Hasan Khan Chowdhury, Office Secretary of Rajshahi Metropolitan Jubo League, told the Itu Bhorer paper that they have said these things as a political strategy. But these conspiracies will not last in Rajshahi, Jubo League is enough to stop them. People will vote by boat.’
Ramzan Ali, the metropolitan president of the organization, told Bhorer paper that the soldiers of Bangabandhu’s ideals will never vote by hand. They are talking nonsense. The leaders of the organization are misleading people. Jubo League will take careful action against those who mislead.
And acting president of the metropolitan Awami League, brave freedom fighter Mohammad Ali Kamal said, ‘We do not consider Hatpakha as any candidate. We have no part with them. We are working together with the entire metropolitan Awami League. But regrettably one or two may not come.
In this regard, BNP’s National Executive Committee relief and rehabilitation co-editor and Rajshahi Metropolitan Committee’s former general secretary Advocate Shafiqul Haque Milan told Vorer paper, “Why will BNP people vote by hand?” We boycotted the election. I am a local resident of Rajshahi, who is the candidate of that party? I do not know their candidate.’
