BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday hoped that their party will get united and stronger further through the countrywide visits of its 51 teams formed with senior leaders.

He came up with the hope after a meeting with the chiefs of the teams at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office that elaborately discussed their work plans.

Fakhrul said the teams were formed as per the decision of the party standing committee for paying a 15-day visit to the party’s 75 organisational districts from April 22 to May 7.

“The 51 teams will go to our organisational districts to hold formal and informal meetings with our grassroots leaders and activists, and give them necessary directions to reinforce their activities. They’ll also discuss all the important issues, including the next election and the possible movement,” he said.

Party sources said the teams will give the district leaders directives to take preparations simultaneously for the next election and a decisive movement to force the government to hold the polls under a neutral administration.

As the elections to six city corporations are likely to be held in mid-June next year, the teams will specially take care of those city units to ensure BNP’s success there replicating the strategy it used in Comilla city polls.

The next general election is to be held in January 2019, while that to Rajshahi, Sylhet, Khulna, Barisal and Gazipur and Rangpur city corporations in the middle of next year.

Besides, the teams will work to make the party men united removing conflicts, division and misunderstanding among them.
