There was concern about the election of the Kadash Jatiya Sangsad. With the end of all the concerns, the Awami League has formed a government for the third time in a row. Even after one month after the elections, there are several types of discussion and criticism. But there are some uncomfortable issues for the Awami League. And at the root of this disquiet, who will be the opposition within and outside Parliament. Ershad national party how the opposition party? In the cabinet, the 14-party allies are not in place, what role will be? It is believed that the winter of politics will be hot in winter with all this.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina addressed the nation for the first time on January 24 after the re-election of the Kadash Jatiya Sangsad election. In that speech, he gave different directions for building the country. Alongside, call the countrymen to come together. In the speech, the Prime Minister also called upon the BNP to come to the Parliament. Although sometime after the Prime Minister’s speech, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told reporters in an immediate reaction that the Prime Minister’s offer to the nation was “fraudulent” because of which he rejected it.
Besides, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is going to organize a tea-cycle for political parties tomorrow on Saturday. Where he will exchange greetings with political parties after the election. One source said that the main aim of the Prime Minister’s tea-cycle is to discuss how to do more work together to take the country forward. In addition, bring a ‘credible’ change of the political environment that prevails in the country.
The National Unity Front has decided not to join this tea-cycle. Thursday afternoon the chair of the president. The meeting of the Steering Committee of the National Unity Front held at Kamal Hossain Chamber. BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told reporters after the meeting that none of them would go to the reception on the invitation of the Prime Minister on February 2 and the tea-cycle program. Calling tea-chakra ‘partisan’, he said that they do not think they need to go there.
Although the Prime Minister did not add unity to the tea-circle, different political parties decided to join. However, the ruling Awami League could not overcome discomfort in a matter before the tea-cycle. After coming to power for the third time, the opposition party will become a big crisis in front of Awami League? Finally, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had to intervene to resolve this issue. HM Ershad’s Jatiya Party is playing the role of the opposition in parliament now under his intervention.
Although the Jatiya Party played the role of the opposition in the parliament, Awami League wants the other allies to play the role of the opposition in the parliament. Awami League leader and 14-party spokesman Mohammad Nasim said that although the opposition is not formally the opposition party, the opposition party will have the role of opposition in the 14-party alliance. Before his remarks, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader also made similar comments.
Although the Awami League has found an opposition party among its allies, the problem has not yet been fixed. Because the central 14-party allies are still unable to understand what their role will be. Although they say they will play the role of the opposition in the parliament. Playing the role of the opposition in the Parliament and in reality does not it be an opposition party by the election? There is a qualitative difference between the two things. Though there is the talk of the opposition in the parliament, there is still no discussion about who will be the opposition party outside the Parliament.
The BNP or the National Unity Front might want to play the role of opposition outside Awami League outside Parliament. But Awami League is not interested in this. The reason is that BNP can not freely rally any rally or rally as a political party. There is a need to get permission from the police to make a meeting anywhere. Prior to the election, arrests of leaders and workers from most of the BNP rally took place. Because of that, the Awami League will be given a lot of discount for the BNP. Because the Awami League leaders are reluctant to leave the BNP.
After the formation of the Awami League government, the first session of Parliament was held on Wednesday. In protest of this session, the BNP organized a human chain in front of the National Press Club in Dhaka the same morning. BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir called for the election to cancel the parliament from the human chain. Besides, he also demanded the release of his party’s Chairperson Khaleda Zia and the leaders and activists of the prison.
Awami League general secretary and road transport and labor minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday demanded the BNP secretary-general’s claim that the BNP’s new election is ridiculous. The democratic world is not confused with the propaganda of the BNP. So the whole world has recognized the new government. What is the attitude of Awami League towards the BNP in this speech is easily understandable?
Against a group there will be a counter-statement, it is normal. But the political vacuum created outside the Parliament and the Parliament, without giving any attention to the opposition, is not desirable in any democratic country. The fact that the Awami League itself also understands, despite the ‘landslide victory’ itself, it is being understood and showing a desperate attitude towards performing a more effective role than itself. But after all these things, the role of the Awami League should be played in the role of changing the politics of the country.
