The conference of Chattogram Metropolitan Swecchashebok League is going to be held in the port city after much discussion and much expected by the grassroots leaders. The first conference of Metropolitan Swecchashebok League will be held on April 11, 2021 at the Institution of Engineers in the presence of the leaders of Central Awami League, Metropolitan AL and Swechchhasebak League.
Organizers said preparations were in full swing, fearing that the ongoing Corona epidemic would be hampered by so many events. They are looking at the central decision in the government’s ban on health regulations.
It is learned that a new committee will be formed at the first conference of Chattogram Metropolitan Swecchashebok League after 21 years in the presence of central leaders. The committee was formed through a conference of allied and fraternal organizations in the long-expired Chattogram metropolis, but the idea that a new committee could be formed or announced from the center if the conference is postponed due to the ongoing Corona epidemic has sparked controversy.
It was decided by the Central Awami League that immediately after the Chittagong City Corporation election, the expired committees of Awami League, Jubo League, Chhatra League, Sramik League, Swecchashebok League and Krishak League would be dissolved and a new committee would be formed.
In its continuation, some of the party leaders want a new committee to be formed through the conference. The 21-member convening committee of Chattogram Metropolitan Swechchha-sebak League was formed in July 2001
KBM Shahjahan, senior joint convener of Chattogram Metropolitan Swecchashebok League and former BCL leader, told The Bangladesh Today, “We have formed grassroots committees after being given the responsibility.” Although there was a strong attempt to convene a conference of the city committee, it did not happen due to various reasons. This time there is no one in the new committee including me and the rest of our conveners.
Asked about the same, Chattogram Metropolitan Awami League general secretary and former city mayor AJM Nasir Uddin told The Bangladesh Today, “I am aware of the 11th Swecchashebok League conference.
We have to accept what will happen and stay by the side of the people. And I don’t see any fault in the Center announcing an official committee by postponing the conference, because it will increase the responsibility to take forward the organizational programs and activities.
In the new committee, the rush of candidates for the post has increased. Many are holding dharnas to the Awami League leaders of Chittagong and the leaders of the Central Volunteer League. Abul Hasnat Belal, newly elected ward councilor of 14 Lalkhan Bazar ward, known as a follower of ABM Mohiuddin Chowdhury, the late president of Nagar Awami League, and Arshadul Alam Bachchu, former GS of MES College, Azizur Rahman Aziz, former Deputy Publicity Secretary of Central BCL and Inspector of Private Prison and Debashish Nath Debu’s name is being rumored.On the other hand, followers of Metropolitan Awami League general secretary and former city mayor Alhaj AJM Nasir Uddin include former president of Government Commerce College Chhatra League Helal Uddin, Abdur Rashid Lokman, Sujit Das and Mohammad Salauddin.
When asked, Councilor Abul Hasnat Belal told The Bangladesh Today, “I am currently the people’s representative who has been nominated by the Awami League, so if the party deems me worthy of the responsibility, I will abide by it faithfully.”
The wave of Awami League’s own grouping in Chittagong is also flowing in the organ organizations. In this context, the senior leaders of Chattogram Metropolitan Awami League said, “We do not understand Mohiuddin Chowdhury and Azam Nasir’s group. Awami League is an ancient political party. Contrary to tradition. Here the decision of the concerned central committee will be the constitution and the final decision.
