Awami League acting general secretary Mahbub-ul Alam Hanif on Wednesday said how other panels could come out victorious.

Awami League acting general secretary Mahbub-ul Alam Hanif on Wednesday said how other panels could come out victorious.

“Had DUCSU elections not been held in a free, fair and neutral manner, how could other panels come out victorious,” he said.

The senior leader of the party came up with the observation while speaking at a discussion as the chief guest at the National Press Club in Dhaka.

Regarding DUCSU polls, he said BNP is frequently accusing of involvement of the Awami League in the polls’ process but the “AL and other parties had no involvement there at all”.

On polls results, the AL spokesman also mentioned the precarious political condition of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) in the DUCSU polls and said they failed to impress the voters in the election.

He said BNP joint-secretary general Rizvi Ahmed embarrassed his party Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia comparing her with the ‘yaba traders’.

“Begum Zia is now in jail on charge of a graft case. But the BNP leader dishonoured her (BNP chief) comparing with the drug peddlers,” he said.

Hanif’s comments came as Rizvi said in a press conference that Khaleda Zia was not getting necessary correctional (detention) facilities what are being usually provided even for a yaba trader inside the prison.

The AL acting general secretary also termed Rizvi’s evaluation on her as a part of tarnishing Begum Zia’s image, saying had Rizvi some political sense, he would have never uttered such words in this connection.

Former minister Advocate Quamrul Islam, AL organizing secretary and Jatiya Sangsad whip Abu Sayeed Al-Mahmud Swapan, Dhaka South City unit AL general secretary Shahe Alam Murad, joint secretary Kamal Chowdhury, Dhaka Union of Journalists (DUJ) general secretary Sohel Haider Chowdhury and Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote general secretary Arun Sarker Rana, among others, spoke at the discussion.

Swapna Foundation organized the discussion on “Bangabandhu and Agnijhora March” with its chairman M Riaz Uddin Ahmed in the chair.
