Poll Defeat in Cities

Govt party leaders blame one another


Apparently nonplussed by defeat in the five city corporation elections in a row, ruling-party leaders are now speaking in varied voices blaming one another for a downturn in government`s popularity, as they struggle to bring the house in order.  

Awami League presidium member Mohammad Nasim Friday candidly conceded that consecutive defeat in local elections ``certainly put government`s popularity under question``.

 An irate Nasim told a function in the capital that those who turned ``liability`` for the government in people`s eye should quit.

 Another presidium member, communications minister Obaidul Quader, squarely blamed finance minister AMA Muhith for the failure in starting construction of the Padma Multipurpose Bridge.

 ``For the finance minister`s unrealistic stance, work on the Padma Bridge could not be taken up in time,`` he said.

 Minister-without-portfolio Suranjit Sengupta said AL-backed candidates` defeat in elections to the city corporations proved that polls can be held fairly under party government.

 ``We hope opposition leader Khaleda Zia will now discard her demand for caretaker government and come to parliament election under this government--and we`ll face her there,`` he told a discussion meeting.

 Environment and forest minister Hasan Mahmud observed at the same meeting that though government party-supported candidates were defeated in the city elections, ``the government and its policy triumphed`` for holding free and fair polls.

 Such observations of their come out from soul-searching over the poll debacle and their respective realization as to what is to be done to gather wits and prepare the party for the final fight at the national elections, due barely in next six months--or even earlier—besides tackling the reanimated opposition BNP plan of movement for polls under a non-party government to build on their grand success in the city elections.
