STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Awami Matshyajibi League’s maiden council today

The first triennial council session of Awami Matsyajibi League, an affiliate organisation of the ruling Awami League, is going to be held today (Friday) at the Krishibid Institution in the city.

Awami Matsyajibi League, an organisation of people involved in the fishing  sector, was not considered an affiliate organisation of the ruling party, but the AL high-ups recently gave their nod for the organisation to hold its council session as an AL affiliate body.

Whle the Awami Matsyajibi League was founded on May 22 in 2004, no council session has been held by the body since its inception. AL General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader will be attend the council session as the chief guest.  

Aspirant leaders of the Matshyajibi League have been lobbying hard with AL central leaders, including its General Secretary Obaidul Quader, in a bid to find themselves in the new committee.

Aspirants also called upon the AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to include faces in the new committee who are honest, dedicated, committed and who have been earlier deprived, though the Friday’s council session.

Party insiders said the AL high-ups decided to hold the council session of Matsyajibi League in a bid to strengthen

the organization. They considered the fact that if the associate bodies and other likeminded organizations become stronger, then the Awami League, as a party, will be strengthen.

They also said that as the AL has been conducting cleansing drives within the party and affiliate bodies, fresh blood might be inducted in the new committee of the Matsyajibi League body.

A number of leaders including former AL lawmakers, former Chhatra League leaders are vying for the two key posts in the new committee of Matsyajibi League.

Among others, convener of the council session and former lawmaker Narayan Chandra Chanda, joint convener Sheikh Ali Azgar,  organization’s incumbent vice-president advocate Harun-ur-Rashid, its former general secretary Md. Abul Bashar, senior vice-president and freedom fighter Abdul Gafur, joint general secretary Redwan Khan Borhan and former BCL leader Mohammad Alam are in the race for the top posts of the body, said souces.

Talking to this correspondent, Harun-ur-Rashid said, “We hope that honest and dedicated leaders will be given chance to run the organisation properly. We will be happy if our party high-ups give responsibility of the organization to those who are competent and experienced.”  “As our party chief (Sheikh Hasina) started a drive to root out corrupt and dishonest leaders as well as infiltrators from the party and its associate bodies, I will request our leader not to induct such people in the new committee,” said ex-BCL leader Mohammad Alam.

When contacted over the upcoming council, Sheikh Ali Azgar said, “I am the son of a freedom fighter. I have sacrificed a lot for Awami League. Besides I worked for the Awami Matsyajibi League since its inception.

If I get the chance to serve the organization, I will try my best to discharge my duties and work for the welfare of the fishermen community in the country.” “Those who are honest, dedicated, committed and have good organising capacity should be given chance in the new committee,” he opined.
