From Jewel Majhi, Chittagong:
Chittagong 8 (Chandgaon-Boalkhali) Bayezid and Panchlaish partial constituencies are going to be held twice in one term. Grand Alliance candidate Jasder Moinuddin Khan Badal was elected Member of Parliament from this seat in the 11th National Parliament Elections held in 2018. After his death on November 7, 2019, by-elections were held in this seat. In the by-election on 13 January 2020, the president of South District Awami League, veteran politician Moshalem Uddin Ahmed was elected as a Member of Parliament.
He died on February 5 at half past one. Ever since the parliamentary seat was declared vacant due to his death, there have been various whispers about the party nomination of Awami League in this seat. Who gets the nomination, who gives the nomination. Such questions are now on the faces of party leaders and ordinary people. Those who are potential candidates for this seat have already announced their candidacy in various posters, banners, social media and newspapers including Facebook. Many senior and junior leaders of Awami League are in the list of candidates. There are also rumors that some of the professionals will seek nomination for this seat again.
Bye-elections will be held on the vacant seats on April 27-23, EC said. Ever since the announcement of the EC election date, the candidates have been scrambling. Many of the candidates are trying to get close to central leaders in Dhaka.
So far, the prominent people who are hoping for nomination are Chasik former mayor Nagar Awami League general secretary AJM Nashir Uddin, late MP Moslem Uddin's wife Shireen Ahmed, Moin Uddin Khan Badal's wife Selina Badal, CDA former chairman Nagar Awami League treasurer. Abdus Chalam, barrister Monwar, former councilor of Ward No. 3 Kofil Uddin Khan, South District Awami League leader Abdur Quader Sujan, former deputy secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League Central Executive Parliament Mahabub Rahman Durjoy. Mahabub Rahman Durjoy is the youngest and active leader among the aspirants.
When asked about the nomination, he said, "I have done BCL politics for many years. I served as the deputy secretary of the newly concluded 29th Central Committee of Bangladesh Chhatra League. Currently I am involved in city politics as a youth organizer. Keeping the principles and ideals of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in my heart, I am working to build Smart Bangladesh, the dream of Honorable Prime Minister Deshratna Sheikh Hasina. In the country, no one struggles for rice and bread, no one agitates for roads. People's leader Sheikh Hasina has ensured the livelihood of the people of Bengal long ago, has been recognized as a role model for global development in the example of the country's infrastructure development. World's second best Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working tirelessly day and night to build Bangabandhu's Sonar Bengal. The so-called bottomless basket of Bangladesh has become an example on the world stage by developing it as a sparkling Bangladesh. Our party leader has already announced to make Bangladesh a smart Bangladesh by 2041. There is no doubt that our leader does what she says. I think there is a need for youth-oriented youth leadership to implement the leader's announcement. I believe that those who are young will be more active and responsible. To make Bangladesh smart, leadership must also be smart. Our leader has smart thinking, if we get party nomination and get elected then surely we will make the elected seat smart by implementing the leader's smart thinking.
He also said - our leader is very positive about young leadership. Young leadership is very less in the national parliament, youth should be given opportunity to represent. To eliminate the unemployment of the country and to lead the active young society, youth-oriented youth leadership is definitely needed as parliamentary leaders. I believe the leader will bring young leadership in the parliamentary elections. The youth can play the biggest role in building the smart Bangladesh of the leader.
Many senior leaders are discussing the candidate for this seat. See our party and party leader believe in democratic process. In a democratic system, anyone can express interest or desire to be a candidate, that is the rule of democracy. Since I am a politician, I have personal participation in all the party programs and I have many opportunities to work for the general voters or people in the party manifesto.
I myself do a lot of humanitarian work, I have various programs through helping common people in different places. I have always stood by people during times of disaster. I have direct contact with all levels of people in this constituency. The voters of the seat know and know me. So I can consider myself qualified as a party candidate with the aim of working for the common good.
When asked to know who is ahead in the nomination race, he said - There is one seat but there are many candidates, there will be competition here. The list of heavyweight candidates is also very long. I asked for the nomination and got the nomination, which is not the case at all. It is natural that a political leader who is thousands of times more skilled and experienced than me will be ahead in the nomination race for this seat.
But I want to represent the youth, eliminate unemployment through youth employment. I want to say the unspoken words of the youth in the parliament, I want to be a partner in building a smart Bangladesh. I will seek nomination with this expectation, the party chief will decide on the nomination. Whoever is nominated, we will ensure the victory of the boat by being active everywhere in the field and for the sake of the party.
When asked whether the opposition party will be elected, he said - I am not thinking about who will be elected and who will not be. But I think those who believe in the power of freedom and democracy should participate in the elections. When asked whether it would be beneficial for you if BNP does not participate in the elections, he said that there is no word for advantages and disadvantages in the democratic system.
During the Awami League government period, all the elections of the country are being conducted according to the democratic rules and this trend will continue in the future as well. He also said that elections will never be allowed to be conducted by undemocratic ruling groups in this country. The people of the country are doing well, there is a festive atmosphere in the polling stations, this is the image of democracy.
When asked about the last question, what will you do if you get nominated and elected, he said - Since many senior leaders are seeking nomination in this constituency, the chances of me getting nominated are very low.
However, in response to your question, if I am nominated and elected, I will strengthen the modern and information technology-based education system, including the construction of the Kalurghat Bridge, which is the long-term demand of the people of Boalkhali. We will rebuild dangerous roads and educational institutions, we will strengthen the legal system to prevent social degradation, we will give importance to the labor system free of disputes between industrial owners and workers, we will keep the modern social system active for the safety of women and children, there will be more importance in the development of education and medical services, grassroots political leaders. We will build a smart Bangladesh with the smart thinking of the party chief along with establishing good relations among the workers.
