It is discerned from the gossips going around that some of the partners who have entered Jatiya Oikyafront are trying to steal the limelight in a bid to win some extra point.

Barrister Moudud Ahmed is known for his loose tongue. He often says things that have no basis whatsover. Only a month back he threatened massive agitation by BNP activists on the roads that would compel the Awami League government to relinquish power. One month has gone by and he could not start any agitation or we may say he could not find ten workers to respond to his call. But he has not learned his lessons. He has said this time that Awami League may disappear from the election field and not take part in the contest! What a great political stunt! According to this brilliant brain, AL had thought BNP would not participate in the upcoming elections but when Moudud and Company joined the Oikyafront and taking preparations to contest the election, AL is scared now. They are afraid of facing defeat in the elections and talking incoherently.
