Besides, those units and associate bodies in the division, district and root levels yet could not hold their councils have also been asked to arrange their councils as soon as possible. In this regard, leaders concerned have been asked to launch organisational tours across the country with a view to completing full-fledged committees in the district level.

Following her directive, party’s general secretary Obaidul Quader, also the Minister for Road Transport and Bridges, also has asked the presidents and general secretaries of different units of the party and associate organisations to form full- fledged committees within two weeks.

In this regard, some of the leaders have been served letters in written while the others have been asked verbally over phone to do their jobs.
