Jubo League Chairman Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash on Tuesday said that opposition BNP is hatching conspiracies to come to power through the back door.
“BNP lost public confidence and became an isolated party. Now they are lobbying with the foreigners to come to power through the back door,” he said while addressing Jubo League leaders and activists at the organisation’s Habiganj council.
The district in north-eastern Bangladesh wore a festive look with colourful banners and festoons for the council, first since 2014.
Parash said losing public confidence BNP has become a “terrorist party” and that Jubo League would ‘resist’ BNP’s anarchy, terrorist acts and all sorts of conspiracies.
Jubo League General Secretary Mainul Hossain Khan Nikhil also spoke at the council which would elect a new committee.
Replying to a question, economist Dr Ashikur Rahman, an executive member of Jubo League, told journalists that through the council they want "to establish healthy politics".
“We want to elect the Prime Minister for the fifth time and with that objective in mind we are holding this council,” he said, referring to the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The next general election is due to be held at the end of 2023.
Under Parash’s leadership, Jubo League leaders and activists stood by the people during the pandemic with food and medicine, and gave houses to the landless and homeless families as a part of Prime Minister Hasina’s pledge of not keeping anyone homeless in the country.
He directed Jubo League leaders and activists across the country to work on overcoming two challenges ahead - ensuring the victory of the Awami League in the upcoming national elections, and establishing Bangladesh as a dignified nation.
