Published: 12:27 PM, 2 March 2018
Jhalokati Sadar-Nalchiti`s (Jhalokati-2) political activities revolve around Awami League, BNP and Jatiya Party. Already, nomination candidates of two key parties of the country - Awami League and BNP - have started their activities in the constituency.
There is no nomination war or conflicts in the ruling Awami League. Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu is going to take part as Awami League candidate in the upcoming election in Jhalokati Sadar-Nalchity (Jhalokati-2) constituency. However, the scene of BNP is different. Chaos and conflicts are seen in the party. Multiple candidates want to nominate.
According to representatives of different professional organizations and voters, Awami League Advisory Council Member Amir Hossain Amu did extensive development in the constituency. Besides, he participates in various programs in the area every week.
District Awami League General Secretary Khan Saifullah Panir said, there is no alternative for Amir Hossain Amu in the constituency. He did extensive development work in the area without being an MP-minister in 1996. Later, as an MP-minister, he took the initiative to build Jhalokati district as a modern model district. Amir Hossain Amu will be elected in the next election, Saifullah Panir added.
Meanwhile, although BNP is back at the organizational level, the party leaders and activists already started their activities in front of the next election. Although there is a conflict between the Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal and Jubo Dal, there is no division in the BNP.
However, Ex-MP Ellen Bhutto, General Secretary of the district Monirul Islam Nupur, central co-organizing secretary Mahbubul Haque Nannu, executive committee member Zeba Amina Khan, two vice-president of the district Mia Ahmed Kibria and Rafiq Howlader, Central Joint Secretary General of Nationalist Social-Cultural Organization, Nurul Islam Babul are expected to get the party nomination.
Former MP Ellen Bhutto said that a group continue their propaganda against me. They are not the supporter of BNP, but they are well wisher of government.
He said that during the last Eid al-Azha, he had interacted with the activists in the area. He expected that he would win by a huge margin if he was nominated in the next election.
Meanwhile, Monirul Islam Nupur, General Secretary of District BNP, said all nomination candidates including former MP Ellen Bhutto left the area after the one-eleven. He was only in the field with leaders and activists during the crisis. He contacted with everyone. Elen Bhutto joined BNP rebel group (reformist), supported by BNP`s late general secretary Abdul Mannan Bhuiyan, in 2008. So he has no right to ask for his party nomination, Nupur said.
Mahbubur Rahman, the member secretary of District Jatiya Party (JP), said that their party candidate in the constituency has not yet been finalized.
Sukamal Ojha Dolon, President of District Jasad (Inu), announced himself to be a candidate for the party in the next polls.
Advocate Hafizur Rahman, the amir of District Jamaat-e-Islami, said that if the alliance is formed, Sheikh Manjul Karim, the former central leader of Islami Chhatrashibir, will want to nominate the seat.
