The word Ivy-Shamim Osman is also closely associated with the word Narayanganj. Even if their party is one, if one is right, the other is left! In the battle of words, one did not hesitate to address the other person rudely. Even the central leaders of the Awami League tried to resolve the dispute but could not find any solution. And the upcoming election is really like ‘pouring ghee’ on that dispute!

The 'conflict' between Selina Hayat Ivy and Shamim Osman's family is very old. However, in the 2011 city elections, it 'burned like purple in oil'. Dr. Selina Hayat Ivy won the election as an independent candidate. She defeated her nearest rival Shamim Osman by a margin of 1 lakh 1 thousand 343 votes.

Then in the 2016 city corporation election, the Awami League relied on Ivy. And the people also put their trust in her for the second time. She was elected mayor by a huge vote. Ivy has twice been elected mayor of the city corporation. Following this, the Awami League has put its trust in Ivy by offering ‘boat’ again.

District Awami League general secretary Abu Hasnat, co-president of the metropolitan Awami League Chandan Shil and general secretary Khokon Shah, who are followers of the Osman family, sought nomination in this election but party president Sheikh Hasina handed over the ‘boat’ symbol relying on Ivy. Since then a new war of words has started.

Ivy's main rival in the election is Taimur Alam Khondaker, a former adviser to the BNP chairperson. However, the main rival was Taimur Alam Khandaker but all eyes were on Narayanganj-4 MP Shamim Osman. On the other hand, Shamim Osman was in a silent role from the beginning.

Selina Hayat Ivy made explosive remarks about Shamim Osman just when the discussion was at its peak.

Shamim Osman, a prominent political figure of Narayanganj, finally broke the silence as he was called 'Godfather' in the election campaign.

Ivy didn't stop at just saying 'Godfather'. She claimed that independent mayoral candidate Taimur Alam Khondaker was Shamim Osman's candidate. As a result, Shamim Osman came to a press conference to clear his position in Narayanganj city election. In addition to announcing his position at the press conference, he did not stop talking to Ivy. Although Shamim Osman announced to stay on the field for Awami League, the situation is still murky.

Shamim Osman spoke for 55 minutes at the press conference. "It simply came to our notice then. Narayanganj is boat base, no one else's game will be played here. From today I got on the boat campaign.”

He also took the name of the boat in the whole press conference, but did not take the boat candidate once. Selina Hayat is the name of Ivy. Rather, he said, ‘Who is the candidate here, who cares. It is not up to us to decide whether it is a banana tree or a mango tree.’

On the other hand, in the election campaign, Ivy commented on Tuesday, "It is not Shamim Osman but the people of Narayanganj who are my hope". Pointing to Shamim Osman's support, she said, "The tide of my boat has already risen. In this city Nabiganj, Bandar, Kadam Rasul, Sonakanda, Siddhirganj, across the river, Narayanganj boat tide has already risen. And this shows how far the water of conflict has flowed.

In the context of which many people think that the conflict was not resolved through this press conference, but new ‘kerosene was poured into the fire.’

Jahangir Alam, senior joint general secretary of Narayanganj district Awami League, told Barta24, "We came to Awami League politics through Chhatra League." I have obeyed the orders of the party. But the dissolved BCL committee of Narayanganj has gone against the boat. They have been working for more different candidates without campaigning, which is frustrating. For this they have been declared void. This leader said that it has been good for the party.

Many people think that Shamim Osman was forced to hold such a press conference under a lot of pressure. The party symbol announced to go down in favor of the boat candidate. Because, in Narayanganj, Shamim Osman and his followers are not in favor of the party's mayoral candidate; instead, some have been working for Ivy's rival independent candidate Taimur Alam Khondaker, it has been revealed in various ways.

It remains to be seen whether Selina Hayat Ivy or Taimur Alam Khondaker will win the Narayanganj city seat in the midst of such a game of words and conflict. The eyes of the entire country, including Narayanganj, will be on the results of the January 16 election.

General Secretary of Awami League Obaidul Quader has commented that there will be a game against BNP's non-politicos next month.

He said this at a peace rally organized by Dhaka Metropolitan North Awami League at Azampur in the capital on Monday (September 25). The rally was organized against BNP's 'terrorism, anarchy, impolitic and continuing anti-national conspiracy'.

Obaidul Quader said, "If BNP does not come in the right direction, we will take these people with us and destroy the black hands of BNP's non-politicos." I will break their black hands.

Awami League general secretary said with a smile, "There will be a game, there will be a game." The game will be played next month. And the actual game or the final game will be played in the first week of January.

He asked the activists, are you ready to play? Then the activists said together, I am ready, I am...

Later, Quader told the activists that if BNP brings weapons, then those hands should be broken. If it brings fire, that hand should be burnt. Like a dog, like a hammer.

He said, we do not care about anyone's visa policy. Giving a message, we don't care about anyone's ban. I made Bangladesh independent not to care about anyone's ban. This country became independent with blood not to obey anyone's ban. I will do my democracy, I will do my election. Who are you The Seven Seas would bar the Thirteen Rivers from across the Atlantic, not the country of Ali Bongo in Gabon.

Four years ago, everyone was quite surprised by the news of Rezaul Haque Rubel becoming the president of Chattogram University unit because Rubel was not a prominent leader until then. He was not seen in the front line of the organization's program. Again age was not in favor of this leader. Rubel, who was admitted to the statistics department of the university in the academic year 2006-07, did not have any studentship at that time. Although the qualifications and qualities needed to manage the organization were absent, nothing stood in the way of him becoming the president.

The leaders and workers of the university branch Chhattra League were disappointed with such a person as the president, but they hoped that Rubel would change after getting a big responsibility. He may retain the honor of the post. But that hope is crushed. Rather, Rubel became more reckless after taking the top position of BCL. Sometimes spending the night in a residential hotel with women, sometimes trampling with subordinate leaders and workers, sometimes lying in the hall room indecently, taking screenshots of women students sending suggestive text messages to women abusers from going viral - Rubel has repeatedly been associated with controversies. Due to these activities, once close leaders and workers also left Rubel and he became alone. At one point he was 'out' from the campus. Later, he returned to the campus secretly, but he had to be assaulted by the leaders and workers of his side.

Due to various incidents, several parties of BCL have been involved in one after another clashes in the campus for the last three days. In the meantime, due to the publication of the news, Rubel's followers attacked Prothom Alo University stringer Mosharraf Hossain on Sunday (September 24). After this, in view of the events of the last few days, the Central Committee of the Chhattra League announced the dissolution of the University Branch Committee. This shows the excitement among the leaders and workers of the BCL grassroots.

Meanwhile, Rezaul Haque Rubel gave a 'farewell message' on his Facebook at six in the evening after announcing the dissolution of the committee. Sharing the notification of the cancellation of the committee signed by Central Chhattra League President Saddam Hossain and General Secretary Sheikh Wali Asif Inan, Rubel wrote, 'We will meet again in a new place. Good luck to all. You will look at the mistakes of the path of forgiveness with a nice vision. Jai Bangla, Jai Bangabandhu.'' Rubel's words written in the farewell message are making new jokes. Because, the general secretary of the dissolved committee, Iqbal Hossain Tipu, wrote the same thing on his Facebook at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Many people are making fun of this 'copy paste' of Rubel.

Under Rubel's post, Ariful Islam Arif, the organizing secretary of the dissolved committee, wrote, 'He could not write the last text himself. That too had to be copied!

Chhattra League worker. Suman Sarkar also wrote almost the same thing. He wrote, "Until the end, the brother copied the caption of others." The vice president of the same committee, Rakibul Hasan Dinar, however, criticized Rubel for repeatedly debating the unit. He wrote, "The dignity of the unit has ended."

Repeated debates:

Rezaul Haque was admitted to the Statistics department of the university in the academic year 2006-07. After that he completed graduation in 2010 and post graduation in 2013.

As per University ordinance, students must complete graduation within six academic years. And post graduation within two academic years. That is, a student can stay in the campus for a maximum of eight years. But Rezaul has been in the campus for almost 17 years.

On July 14, 2019, Rezaul got the responsibility of the president of the university branch Chhattra League. But his studentship ended 6 years ago. According to the constitution of the organization, the term of this post is one year but he was the president for about 4 years. In these four years, Rubel has repeatedly been involved in controversy

On July 17 last year, a student was sexually assaulted and beaten up by five youths on the campus. Five youths tied up and undressed the victim student and recorded a video on the mobile phone. Azim Hossain is the main accused in this incident. He was a follower of Rezaul. Azim has been permanently expelled from the university in this incident.

According to the oppressed student, Rezaul tried to hide the incident to save Azim. Rezaul discouraged him from filing a complaint and filing a case with the proctor's office. This was then published in various media.

Before this debate was over, a picture of Rezaul was criticized all over the country on March 20. In the picture, Rezaul is seen lying on the bed in the hall room and looking at the phone. Shamim Azad and Shafiul Islam, two leaders of the branch Chhattra League, are pressing his feet sitting on either side. Rezaul claimed that the two leaders were 'serving' him as he was ill. After that, on June 1, there was an allegation against Rezaul of cutting and injuring Deputy Office Secretary Ramzan Hossain. A phone conversation of Rezaul about being involved in this incident went viral on social media. At the same time, a personal photo of Rubel lying naked in his hall room also went viral on Facebook. Earlier, on November 5, 2020, Rubel had come under widespread criticism across the country for spending the night in a residential hotel on Agrabad Sheikh Mujib Road in the city with a young woman. When the video of him entering the hotel with the woman went viral on social media, Rubel dismissed it as a propaganda.

Rubel finally has to leave the campus after 17 years as the committee was abolished. But even during that goodbye, he became a source of laughter by copying and pasting.

The General Secretary party is also blaming Rubel's controversial activities behind the dissolution of the committee the queues Two of these parties, who did not disclose their names, told Barta24.com that we also wanted a new committee in this branch. But I did not want the committee to be disbanded in such a controversial way. Mainly due to Rubel's various controversial activities, the reputation of this unit has been undermined by the whole country.

Chhattra League central committee president Saddam Hussain's speech also revealed that the committee was abolished due to the controversial activities of the leaders. He told the media, "The recent incidents are undesirable and against our party discipline and ideals." Positive student politics is our expectation. We have taken this action due to the violation of that.
