>Jalil finally opts for ‘political’ rest

>AWAMI League (AL) General Secretary Abdul Jalil has finally decided to stay away from politics for now following party President Sheikh Hasina’s ‘advice due to his ailments’. (Full article)
Jalil’s latest decision ends AL’s recent quandary for now, about who is going to be the general secretary, letting Joint General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam keep acting as the general secretary until the party chief, now in the US for treatment, returns home. 
Meanwhile, the party’s Acting President Zillur Rahman yesterday said Hasina will not sit for any dialogue with anyone before her release on parole is made unconditional and permanent.
“As party President Sheikh Hasina advised me to take rest for a few days, I will do so,” Jalil told reporters in his Gulshan residence in the capital yesterday.
Earlier he had announced that he would be back in politics as the general secretary of AL after the High Court had granted him a 40-day ad interim bail on September 10.
