The Awami League envisions a “Smart Bangladesh” by 2041, seeking to build a country that would be cost-effective, sustainable, innovative and knowledge-based.
Activists and leaders of the ruling Awami League and its associate bodies yesterday took position in different places of the city “to prevent any untoward incident” centring the BNP’s procession.
The year 2022 marked a major turnaround for the BNP as the party seemed to have overcome the organisational weaknesses and political inertia that had been plaguing it since the disappointing results of the 2018 national polls.
Political activities of the ruling Awami League in 2022 began slowly, after a quiet pandemic, and gathered significant momentum towards the end of the year.
With the BNP out of the equation, the competition was supposed to be between the ruling Awami League and main opposition Jatiya Party.
The question is whether the AL, as a ruling party, is capable of countering the opposition camp’s campaign and preparing for the upcoming election at the same time, with its old faithfuls.
After completing its rallies in 10 divisional cities, the BNP now wants to wage a one-point movement to oust the government, uniting all like-minded opposition parties and forces.
