The BKSALITES

When Banga Bir Gen. Osmani and Mr. Mainul Hossain resign in protest many lined up to join BKSAL showing height of opportunism.

Mr. Mohammed Farhad the general secretary of CPB and Muzaffar NAP welcomed Sheikh Mujibur Rahaman’s decision to introduce one party rule in the country. Due to the announcement of the so-called ‘national party’ all other political parties got abolished. Finally CPB, NAP Muzaffar and Awami League got merged into BKSAL. Out of the 8 opposition members in the Parliament 4 joined BKSAL. The elderly politician Ataur Rahman Khan of Jatiyo league manifested unprecidented opportunism by joining BKSAL log stock and barrel.

In the same declaration 5 sister organisation of BKSAL were also formed:-

General Secretaries

1. Jatiyo Krishak league Fani Bhushan Majumdar

2. Jatiyo Sramik league Professor. Yousuf Ali

3. Jatiyo Mahila league Sajeda Choudhury

4. Jatiyo Jubo league Tofayel Ahmed

5. Jatiyo Chattra league Sheikh Shahidul Islam.

The general Secretaries nominated were most trusted confidants of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The members of the central committees of these organizations consisted of members taken from CPB, NAP Muzaffar and Jatiyo league of Ataur Rahman Khan. In accordance with forming of BKSAL on 16th June1975 NewsPaper Cancellation Act was promulgated. Under this Act only four nationalized dailies were allowed to be published alongwith a few weeklies. Rests were all banned. Thus after complete burial of democracy the whole country was subjugated under unprecedented reign of white terror. Being denied of personal security the people was suffocated and became hostages in their own homeland under the tyranny of the autocratic BKSAL rule.
