Awami League To Hold Councils AT Grassroots Level


Bangladesh Awami League will start reorganising the party at grassroots level by holding councils.
Several party leaders say they will start holding the councils from next month to revamp the party at grassroots level.


However, the party is gearing up for all the local councils after the month of Ramadan and August 15, the death anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

At a meeting on Wednesday, the Awami League Working Committee assigned General Secretary and LGRD Minister Syed Ashraful Islam to finalise a roadmap for the district councils after discussing with the party’s divisional organising secretary and joint secretary.

AL Presidium Member Nuh-Ul-Alam Lenin told the Dhaka Tribune that the party had assigned the general secretary and divisional organising secretary to reorganise the party by holding local councils.

Citing the organisational situation at grassroots level, Lenin said they had completed councils in many districts, but the committees had not yet been formed in all these districts. They had formed committees in some districts. “To resolve all problems, we will sit to hold the district councils,” the leader said.

Awami League Organising Secretary Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said party chief Sheikh Hasina had instructed them to hold district councils as early as possible.

“Within a day or two, we will meet with the party’s general secretary to set the timeframe for grassroots councils,” said Khalid Mahmud, the organising secretary of Rangpur division.
