Faridpur District Awami League Triennial Conference
The triennial conference of Faridpur district Awami League is going to be held on 12 May. About 20,000 leaders and activists are expected to attend. For this, 50 lakh rupees is being spent for the construction of the stage of the conference only at the Government Rajendra College ground in the city.
According to the relevant sources, the stage, which is spread over 1 lakh 5 thousand square feet, has seating for 15 thousand chairs. A special stage has been set up across some parts of the main stage with iron poles keeping in mind the thoughts of the Baishakhi storm. So that the stage is not damaged even in the Kalavaishakhi storm.
The district Awami League leaders said that they are expecting the presence of about 20,000 leaders and activists from different parts of greater Faridpur besides the nine upazilas of Faridpur in this triennial conference. Lunch will also be arranged for them on that day.
Meanwhile, the conference stage, which was built at a huge cost, has created a lot of curiosity among the city dwellers. Many people are also asking what will be done by planting thousands of bamboos visible across the Rajendra College grounds.
Concerned parties said that such a big conference has not been staged outside the capital or the divisional city before. However, the idea of making such a stage in Faridpur was taken after seeing the stage of a party function at Rajbari. Although it was not so big.
An organization called Nur Decorator of Rajbari is also working on the stage of this conference of Awami League in Faridpur. Nurul Islam, the owner of the decorator, told this reporter that 50 workers are working day and night to make this stage of 1 lakh 5 thousand square feet. To create a stage that takes about a month. But we got less time. Work is being done day and night for this.
He added that the stage is being set up with 15,000 bamboos and fifty electric poles. Fifteen thousand guests will be in fifteen thousand chairs. There will be three hundred fans across the stage for them. The cost of building this stage is around 50 lakh rupees. He said it would only cost money to build the stage.
Nurul Islam said there has never been such a stage outside the capital or the metropolis. Although there was a stage in the palace before, it was not so big.
An extended meeting was held on April 17 last month centering on this triennial conference of the district Awami League. At that meeting a reception committee, finance committee, publicity committee, stage and decoration committee, law and order committee, health committee, hospitality committee, food supply committee and communication and transport committee were formed along with the conference preparation committee.
Jharna Hasan, convener of the stage and decoration committee and a member of the finance committee, said Faridpur is Bangabandhu’s district. For this an initiative has been taken to hold a grand conference in Faridpur. Earlier, a grand conference was also held at Rajbari. We have bigger preparations than that.
He further said that we have a target of presence of twenty thousand leaders and workers. Invited guests will also come from the surrounding districts.
Regarding the cost of the stage, he said that at present the salary of a worker has also increased. Before it was the price of money. But now the price of everything has gone up. So a good amount will be spent to make the stage all together. However, he did not specify exactly how much money would be spent on it.
According to party sources, Central General Secretary Obaidul Quader will be the inaugural speaker at this year’s triennial conference of Faridpur District Awami League. Presidium member Kazi Zafarullah is the chief guest.
