Awami League (AL) aims to utilize the strength of positive public image of its party president in the upcoming national election. The key instrument of AL during the election campaign will be Sheikh Hasina. Depending on the party president’s image, the party wants to succeed in the upcoming election.
Therefore, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina plans to get connected with all voters of the country. To execute the plan successfully, the election committee of AL has already started devising election campaign plan.
General Secretary of AL Obaidul Quader said, “Currently, Sheikh Hasina is the most popular personality. People believe her every word and consider her to be the architect of modern Bangladesh. We want to deliver her messages to each citizen of the country.”
Several sources of AL have confirmed this by suggesting further that the party plans to reach people not just through holding rallies and meetings, but also by means of modern technology.
All sources of AL are saying that the PM will send at least three short messages to every voter as part of election campaign. Moreover, she will also send at least one voice SMS to the voters. All messages will carry the messages requesting the people to vote for AL. The messages will appear on YouTube, Facebook, and other social media sites. A Facebook page will be opened to promote the messages of AL.
The country has seen the PM inaugurating numerous projects and official functions by means of the video conferencing. However, this time, the PM plans to connect with people through video conference. Furthermore, she plans to arrange a questions and answers (Q&A) session with the people and listen to their requirements. To reach out the young and urban voters, AL plans to send e-mails as well.
All will be done to reassure the people that their leader will always be beside them.
Many senior leaders of AL have said, there might be controversy with the activities of AL leaders and activists. People might hold grudge against some leaders. But, there is no such controversy against the president of AL.
Obaidul Quader has said, “The upcoming national election of Bangladesh is a very crucial one for the nation as the country will celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman during the term of the next government. Also, the 50th Victory Anniversary of Bangladesh will be held in that term.”
According to the AL general secretary, the party has no alternative but to win the upcoming national election. The party will prove to the people that Awami League is a party of the people and party for the people.
