Chicken leaders sleep for bidden Declared unwanted in locality

Staff Correspondent: Even though it is cold in the capital, Parasite leaders are sweating. Those who have suddenly become the ‘chickens’ of the ruling party from the movement field and have entered the election field, have lost their night’s sleep. Some of the business leaders have submitted their nomination papers with the wish to be Boat riding MP and some to be Awami League MPs. But no one is yet guaranteed to become an MP and the boat symbol. Parasitic left leaders who became MP ministers on boats in the last two elections are not guaranteed boats; Similarly, those who fell in love to become MPs and filed their nomination papers announcing that they will go to the elections as ‘chickens’ in the haat-bazaar, have not yet been assured of ‘seats’. Rather, most of those who have gone to the polls to become MP-ministers are unable to go to the constituencies. Some have been declared undesirable by local people; Threatening to send someone away.
Gana Odhikar Parishad President Nurul Haque said that the Gana Odhikar Parishad will not go to any ‘watered down’ election under the current government. The ruling party has set up a sacrificial market in the field of politics to make Patano elections appear to be participative of foreigners. Some politicians are being sold like cattle and goats in this sacrificial market.
In the politics of Bangladesh, the ruling Awami League and the opposition party BNP are mainly political parties supported by the people. Participatory elections in the country and the international arena consider the competition between these two parties as practical. But BNP is agitating for elections under a non-partisan government. The ruling Awami League has started the process of rigged elections for the sake of the constitution. The ruling Awami League has turned some opportunistic leaders into ‘chickens’ by tempting them to become MP-ministers in order to show the international community that ‘participatory elections have taken place’. When guests come home in the village, chickens are caught by various techniques in rural houses for emergency slaughter. After the exclusion of BNP in the 12th National Assembly elections, the ruling party has brought some political leaders to the elections like catching chickens. Those leaders have entered the election by talking happily in the hope of becoming MP-ministers. Among such leaders are Trinamool BNP’s Shamser Mobin Chowdhury, Advocate Taimur Alam Khandkar, Kalyan Party Major General (retd) Syed Muhammad Ibrahim, former BNP leader Shah Muhammad Abu Zafar. The latest ‘chicken’ is the former vice chairman of BNP, Barrister Shahjahan Omar. He is sitting on the boat as a chicken. In addition, Rashed Khan Menon of Workers Party, Fazle Hossain Badsha, Hasanul Haque Inu, Shirin Akhter of Jasad, Dilip Barua of Samyavadi Party and others who became MP-ministers in 2014 and 2018 were safe. But none of them are at peace during the preparations for the upcoming elections. They went to the polls to become MP-ministers, but they still could not secure their seats. Because Awami League has already announced party candidates for 298 seats. As a result, some are courting to confirm the boat, while some are candidates of other brands, they are asking for the mercy of Awami League. But so far, no assurance has been given from Awami League. As a result, in the election, on the one hand, they have been elected, but on the other hand, there is no place in the boat.
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said that the election train is running. No matter how many obstacles come, this train will not stop until it reaches its destination. Although BNP did not participate in the election as a party, their 15 central leaders and 30 former MPs are participating in the election. After many days around the election, a festive atmosphere is being observed across the country. As a result, the partisan leaders fear that the election may be held the way Awami League has nominated the party candidate. As a result, they don’t understand whether or not they were in situations like the grocery store’s ‘No Returns’ warning.
The latest addition to the list of ‘chickens’ sold on the occasion of the 12th National Assembly elections is BNP Vice Chairman and former State Minister for Law, Barrister Major (retd) Shahjahan Omar. After coming out of jail, he filed his nomination papers as a candidate for boat symbol in Jhalakathi-1 seat the next day. In the meantime, he has been declared undesirable in that district. Before his arrest last month, in a meeting attended by BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, he described US Ambassador Peter Haas as the ‘avatar’ of democracy in Bangladesh. But while sitting in jail, Shahjahan Omar came out from BNP with the decision of election with boat brand. After announcing to be a candidate in the election, he accepted the nomination in the boat symbol. He said, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s politics was much better than Ziaur Rahman’s, so I became a candidate for the boat. Even though he is a candidate for boat, the leaders and activists of BNP of Jhalkathi and Awami League of Rajapur and Kathalia upazilas have declared him undesirable. Jhalkathi District BNP Member Secretary Advocate Shahadat Hossain said in a video message that Jhalkathi District BNP along with central BNP has been cleared. Declaring Shah Jahan Omar undesirable. On the other hand, the leaders of Awami League have also entered the field against him. The local leaders of the ruling party have announced that Shahjahan Omar will be kicked out with shoes and public beatings.
Former advisor of BNP Chairperson Shamser Mobin Chowdhury and Advocate Timur Alam Khandkar were named in the list of first sold chickens before the 12th National Assembly Elections. They announced to take the leadership of Trinamool BNP and go to the elections. Then he announced candidates for 300 seats. Shamser Mobin Chowdhury has submitted nomination papers as a candidate for Sylhet-6 seat but he has been declared undesirable. He could not go to the constituency till now. Taimur Alam Khandkar has submitted his nomination for Narayanganj-1 seat, but he has been asked to be a candidate for Narayanganj-5 seat. His speech on the ‘seat issue’ has gone viral on social media. Major (retd) Syed Muhammad Ibrahim of Kalyan Party was the coordinator of the 12-party alliance that was simultaneously agitating with the BNP movement. Suddenly, he announced that he would go to the polls after turning away from the movement. In order to participate in the elections, he bought the nomination papers of Dhaka-5 and Dhaka-14 constituencies. But Awami League has finalized party candidates in these seats. As a result, he has submitted nomination papers as a candidate for a seat in Chittagong Division.
One-time Bakshal MP and later Jatiya Party and BNP MP Shah Mohammad Abu Zafar jumped from BNP and suddenly formed the Bangladesh Nationalist Movement (BNM). He announced going to the polls for the sake of halwa-ruty. Along with him, three other former MP Abdul Wahab, former MP of Jhenaidah-1 constituency, Dewan Shamsul Abedin, former parliament member of Sunamganj-4 constituency and Abdur Rahman, former MP of Barguna-2 constituency, have become candidates of that party. Labor leader Shah Mohammad Abu Zafar was once in Awami League, later joined Bakshal. In the 1979 elections, he became a Member of Parliament for Faridpur-4 constituency with the boat symbol of Awami League. He was elected in the 1986 and 1988 elections with the Jatiya Party’s plow symbol. Joined BNP in 2003. In 2005 Faridpur-1 Constituency by-election became a Member of Parliament with the symbol of a grain of rice. Seeing the list of chickens, the leaders of some Islamic groups could not contain their greed. They too (6 parties of Islamic sect) met the Prime Minister under the leadership of Khilafat movement leader Allama Maulana Shah Ataullah Hafezi to contest the elections. They ‘begged for a seat’ to the Prime Minister but could not get much benefit. After coming out of Ganobhaban, three/four leaders of the parties announced that they will not be elected as candidates for various constituencies but others did not get the expected benefits. Also, leaders of several other parties have filed nomination papers with the hope that ‘if seats are obtained through compromise’.
Rashed Khan Menon, Hasanul Haque Inu’s party leaders were safe for the last 15 years. In 2014 and 2018, he became an MP and minister on a boat. And Dilip Barua of the Communist Party became a minister in the technocrat quota. In the last 15 years, many political storms have swept over the ruling Awami League. Had to deal with hostile environment. Domestic and foreign pressures have to be handled. When the ruling Awami League was in a disastrous situation under the pressure of the BNP’s movement and fair, impartial and participatory elections of foreigners; Even then Menon-Inura safely performed the duties of MP-minister. Their thinking is that Awami League will deal with domestic and foreign pressure and they will “enjoy power” as MP ministers from safety as a partner of the 14-party alliance. Now he is in trouble. Awami League has already announced party candidates for 298 seats. As a result, Inu, Menon, Dilip, Badsha, Shireen Akhtar, as the leaders of the Sharik party, have become MPs without problems. In Kushtia, there is no candidate for Inu seat, Rashed Khan Menon’s Dhaka, Fazle Hossain Badshar’sRajshahi, Shirin Akhtar’s boat candidate for Feni seat. In addition, in some other constituencies where Jasad and Workers Party MPs are present, boat candidates have also been given this time. As a result, these leaders, who are used to eating halwa-bread of power after becoming MP-ministers on a boat for 15 years, have lost sleep at night as it is not certain that they will become MPs. Several leaders of Awami League said that Rashed Khan Menon himself became an MP-minister by riding a boat and made his wife an MP in a reserved seat. Similarly,Hasanul Haque Inu became MP-Minister and his wife also became MP. This time they will not be given that opportunity.
Professor Dr. Asif Nazrul yesterday said about the election that the election of his dummy candidates and loyal parties with Awami League is being held on January 7. It is not really an election. It is Bakshal-2 or a one-party election. The rivals of Awami League in this organized election are the leaders of their loyal parties.
