Ravens, fly away

Pictures of a banner, sporting a raven and saying “Want to see Mohammadpur Thana Awami League free of dar kaua (ravens)”, have been shared many times on social media. Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader branded infiltrators as dar Kaua during a rally in Sylhet last year. Insiders said a number of AL activists, who have been hoping to get posts in the thana unit committee of AL, had put up the banner. After Dhaka City unit AL (North) on December 27 approved committees of 26 thana units, there had been criticisms that infiltrators were named in the committees depriving devoted activists. On January 2, frustrated AL activists met AL President Sheikh Hasina over the matter, prompting her to suspend the committees. The banner reiterates the party activists' demands ahead of the formation of new committees. Photo: Palash Khan
