AL eager to get Sohel Taj back

Lastnewsbd,27 January,Dhaka:
The ruling Awami League is keen to get Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj, son of country`s first Prime Minister Tajuddin Ahmad, back in active politics under the party banner.

Earlier, rumours ran wild among Awami League leaders and workers after Sohel Taj met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina last Saturday. Several media outlets reported that Sohel was likely to be given a key post in the upcoming council of Awami League.

However, Sohel Taj binned the rumours and said that he and his family members went to meet the prime minister to apprise her about the launching of `Tajuddin Ahmad and Syeda Zohra Tajuddin Memorial Foundation`.

Sohel, who was made a state minister for home affairs in Hasina`s 2009-2013 cabinet but resigned after six months, said his family and he felt the PM`s guidance and advice regarding the venture would be invaluable.

“Our honourable prime minister is not only the guardian of the people of Bangladesh but also the protector of the ideals and principles of Bangabandhu and our Liberation War and so it is only natural that we would seek her cooperation and blessings regarding this noble venture,” he said.

“…I would like to let everyone know that media reports about me re-entering politics is absolutely untrue,” Sohel Taj wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.

Later in another post, Sohel Taj wrote: “I understand and appreciate the love and affection that everyone has shown for me and I am very thankful for that and I will be forever grateful. I feel that I can do a lot of good work for people through “Tajuddin Ahmad & Syeda Zohra Tajuddin Memorial Foundation.” I was, I am and I always will be enshrined by the ideology of Bangabandhu and the Liberation War for which my father dedicated his entire life and made the ultimate sacrifice. I am grateful to our Honorable Prime Minister for her love, kindness and support for me, my family and for the foundation.”

Sohel resigned as lawmaker on April 23, 2012, and declared that he would no longer be involved in active politics.

Meanwhile, a member of Awami League advisory committee, also a presidium member, told that the Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam want Sohel Taj in party`s active politics.

“They personally like him (Sohel Taj) very much,” the AL presidium member told

The AL leader also said that both Sheikh Hasina and Syed Ashraf want to see Sohel Taj active in politics as a faithful `party man` of Sajeeb Wazed Joy, son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The AL leader said that if Joy leads the party in future, then Sohel Taj will act as his faithful `party man` like Sayed Ashraf to Sheikh Hasina.

The AL leader hoped that Sohel Taj will return to active politics very soon and the move will be proved as a prudent decision.
