PV Desk : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today warned all aspirants of her party in the next general election of the consequences of carrying out propaganda against each other while seeking nomination, saying such bad practice would disqualify them to get party ticket.

Urging her party men to abandon mud sliding against the sitting parliament members or any rival candidate within the party, she said instead, everybody should focus on the development works of the government to woo the voters apart from speaking about the possible danger of returning BNP and their cohorts to power like 2001.

Sheikh Hasina announced that no aspirant engaged in spreading propaganda within the party would get party ticket in the upcoming election.

“Every aspirant should understand that such propaganda against rivals within the party would ultimately ruin votes of the party,” she said.

Addressing a Special Extended Meeting of Bangladesh Awami League at Gonobhaban here today, the premier urged all the party leaders and workers to reach the messages of development of the government to the people.

“People should be informed of our activities we have already done for them and what we would do in the future. Your failure to do this perfectly would be catastrophic for the party and the country as well,” she said.

The Prime Minister asked the lawmakers of the party to be corrected before the time is exhausted and work together with dedicated workers to acquire public support in their constituencies.

“Your ticket would certainly depend on your popularity, services to the people and relation with grassroots workers,” she said.

She also urged the party lawmakers to remain aware of the opportunist elements and notorious criminals who have taken shelter under the umbrella of the ruling party, saying many of them have come to make their own fortune and safe themselves from justice.

Party should not be a sanctuary for those who are accused of arson attacks
or any criminal acts, Sheikh Hasina said, calling upon the lawmakers to leave them just now as they may commit any occurrence ahead of the next general election.
