BNP wants to complete reorganisation by Nov

BNP wants to complete reorganisation by Nov

The BNP plans to complete reorganisation at the grassroots level by November and hold its national council sometime in December or January, according to party sources. The BNP has concentrated on reorganising the party at all levels after faring poorly in the December 30 parliamentary elections. The party won only six seats and its ally, Ganoforum, two seats out of the total 300 constituencies. It has, however, termed the elections "largely manipulated".

The reorganisation of the party and its front organisations are going on in full swing, with the ultimate target of completing it by November to try and hold the next national council by the end of this year, said a senior leader, preferring anonymity. He said the BNP high command wants to reorganise the party and its front organisations by holding council and ballots to elect the party leadership at all levels in a democratic manner.

The leader, however, said all would depend on the time and political situation as to how the reorganisation would be carried out.

When contacted, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said they are yet to fix any time to hold the party national council. “We cannot tell you a time for the national council as the party is now carrying out reorganisation at the grassroots levels,” he said. He, however, said reorganisation at the union and upazila levels is going on in full swing.

"We will hold our national council after completion of the reorganisation," he added. The party's acting chairman, Tarique Rahman, living in London in self-exile, started the reorganisation process in early March year by holding a video conference with district leaders. He formed a convening committee where the district committee had completed its tenure. He also asked partial district committees to complete the respective committees within three months, party insiders said.

The party rank and file, however, say they are facing challenges in some districts due to administrative pressure and the ruling party's obstructions on grassroots-level BNP workers and leaders in carrying out organisational activities. The leaders, however, expressed the hope that the party would be able to complete the reorganisation by this year and stand on a strong footing.

Sources said the BNP acting chairman has so far held video conferences with over half of the districts committees and is continuing to hold more. Office sources said the acting chairman has so far formed 25 district committees, of which 19 are convening committees and four partial committees that have been asked to submit full committees.  The convening committees were given three months’ time to reorganise the party.

Besides, he formed convening committees of four front organisations - the Jatiyatabadi Motsyajibi Dal, Jatiyatabadi Tanti Dal, Jatiyatabadi Ulema Dal and the Jatiyatabadi Krishak Dal.

A senior leader said the Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), the student wing of the party, would get a new committee soon, as the JCD counsellers, at a meeting yesterday (Tuesday), entrusted the BNP acting chairman with the responsibility of electing the leadership of the organisation.

The BNP organising secretary, Fazlul Haque Milon, said they are engaged in carrying out reorganisational activities at the union and upazila levels. He also said party leaders and activists would be rejuvenated after reorganisation and holding of the national council.

After the December 30 parliamentary elections, Tarique Rahman took the initiative to reorganise the party by holding Skype conferences with district leaders and giving them directives from early March.

The sixth national council of the BNP was held on March 19, 2016, and its three-year tenure has ended.
