Fazle Hossain Badsha
Workers' Party Politburo member Fazle Hossain Badsha yesterday hoped he would get nomination from Awami League-led alliance from Rajshahi-2 (Rajshahi City Corporation) constituency in the upcoming parliamentary election.“Politics should be the job of politicians, not of other professionals. My nomination is almost confirmed”, he said at a press conference held in the city.Talking on recent opposition by local Awami League to his nomination, Badsha said, “Anything unfair does not sustain. People will reject unethical politics”, he said. “Fundamentalists and communal forcers do not want me to win as they fear me”, he said. Badsha sacrificed his candidacy in August 4 Rajshahi City Corporation election to make way for Awami League leader AHM Khairuzzaman Liton, who was elected mayor. Local Awami League and Rajshahi Nagorik Committee promised Badsha that Rajshahi-2 would be left for him in the national election.
