AL to start giving final nomination letters from today: Quader

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said that the party will start giving final nomination letters to their candidates today and the process will be completed by tomorrow [Friday].

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said that they have already come in consensus with their alliance partners over the seat sharing issue.

He urged the components of AL-led grand alliance to accept the final nominations of the alliance for the sake of greater interest.

He came up with the call while speaking at a joint meeting of Swechchhasebak League at the party’s Bangabandhu Avenue office this afternoon.

Quader called upon the party’s leaders and activists to get united and protect the voting centres on December 30.

"There's no alternative for us to win. BNP can't turn out to be victorious in the polls as it couldn't win the movement," he said

Quader further said, "Oikyafront's conspiracy tool may hit again. If they guard the polling stations, Awami League must protect the voting centres."

He urged their party leaders and workers not to be complacent about coming back to power in the next election.

"Work together for ensuring the victory of all the candidates of our party and alliance partners."

The ruling party leader also warned that a terrible situation like 2001 will be created if Awami League gets defeated in the election.

"If we want to avoid such awful situation, we all must remain united."

The ruling party leader also said there is no reason for having any misunderstanding among their alliance partners. "We sat in talks repeatedly so that we could nominate the good candidates from the alliance."

Quader also hoped that those who will get nominations from the grand alliance will come out successful in most of the seats.

THE MAN WHO BRINGS HOME FLOWERS FOR HIS DAUGHTERS EVERY DAY... Sitting beside a tree on Dhaka University campus, Jamal Uddin makes a garland with bokul flowers. Every morning, the 52-year-old collects these small, sweet-smelling white flowers from Ramna Park and makes around 40 garlands. He sells each for Tk 10. Jamal said most of his regulars are university students who always greet him with a smile. But, he said, the best part of his day is when he returns home with remaining bokuls, gives them to his three daughters and sees them beaming with joy. Photo: Prabir Das
