Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said there will be no change in the post of party president in the AL’s 21st national council slated for December 20-21.

“There will be no change in one post and that is the post of president. Our party President Sheikh Hasina is still essential and relevant for the party as all leaders and workers from the center to the grassroots are united under her leadership. Apart from her, none of us is essential,” he said.

He said this while replying to a question from journalists after a meeting of AL sub-committee on office, which was formed marking the 21st national council, at the party president’s Dhanmondi political office here.

Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said AL President Sheikh Hasina will decide whether any change would be brought in general secretary post.

AL Presidium Member and convener of office affairs sub-committee Pijush Kanti Bhattacharya, Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Office Secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap, Deputy Office Secretary Barrister Biplab Barua, Central Working Committee member Anwar Hossain and sub-committee member Khandker Tareq Raihan attended the meeting, among others.
