Chairman of Bangladesh Awami Jubo League Sheikh Fazle Shams Parash reached Sylhet on Sunday afternoon for holding councils of Moulvibazar and Habiganj district units of the ruling party’s youth body.
The districts in northeastern Bangladesh wore a festive look with colorful banners and festoons for his arrival.
So much enthusiasm is there among the party leaders and activists of the districts,” Jubo League's Deputy Office Secretary Delowar Hossain Shahjada told Bangladesh Post from Sylhet. “They didn’t see such types of councils for long.”
The present committee of Habiganj district Jubo League was formed in 2014 while in Moulvibazar in 2017.
The triennial council of Moulvibazar and Habiganj districts will take place on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
Parash is the eldest son of Jubo League founder Sheikh Fazlul Haque Moni, nephew of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
He was elected unopposed during its 7th national congress in November, 2019. Since then, he has been trying to give the organisation a boost.
Standing by the people during the pandemic with food and medicine, and giving houses to the landless and homeless families as a part of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s pledge of not keeping anyone homeless in the country were some of the key activities of Jubo League under Parash’s leadership.
e directed Jubo League leaders and activists across the country to work on overcoming two challenges ahead - ensuring the victory of the Awami League in the upcoming national elections, and establishing Bangladesh as a dignified nation.
He also asserted that his organisation would always stay in field "to resist opposition BNP, Jamaat-e-Islami’s anarchy, terrorist acts and all sorts of conspiracies".
On his arrival in Sylhet, Parash visited the shrine of Hazrat Shahjalal and offered prayers there. Jubo League General Secretary Mainul Hossain Khan Nikhil was also present, among others.
