The grassroots of the Awami League now trust a leader, they will listen to the words and instructions of one. She is the party president Sheikh Hasina. An Awami League leader said, “Only one person can remove this instability of the Awami League.” He is the president of the Awami League. ‘He said,’ The problem inside the Awami League can be solved in an instant. Only Sheikh Hasina will give a shout. Sheikh Hasina will warn those who are having problems within the party by making only one phone call, then all the crises will end in an instant.
Several leaders of the Awami League say that the organizational secretaries of those departments have been given the responsibility to solve the problems of the Awami League in the districts but the district and Upazila leaders do not respect the organizational secretaries very much. Moreover, many central leaders are also fueling internal quarrels in districts and Upazilas. As a result, local leaders do not heed the instructions of the organizational secretaries, according to Awami League sources. In the first term, the general secretary of the Awami League was very visible and active.
He used to visit different districts regularly and supervise organizational matters round the clock. The Awami League has been in an organizational crisis since his illness. His movements were limited during the Corona period. This is also one of the reasons for the breakdown of the chain of command. Earlier, the presidium members of the Awami League were very effective. They used to search for district Upazilas and grassroots. Leaders like Abdur Razzak, Tofail Ahmed, Amir Hossain Amu, Suranjit Sen Gupta, Mohammad Nasim were present in the national politics. Their staff obeyed and respected. All these leaders had a cadre. But now most of the presidium members of the Awami League do not have influence in national politics, which is why they do not have popularity among the grassroots. Sheikh Hasina is the only place of trust and confidence of the leaders and workers of Awami League. The Awami League is now waiting for a decision from Sheikh Hasina.
