Major General (Retd.) Shubid Ali Bhuiyan served in the Bangladesh Army for 33 years with diligence and integrity. His leadership in a 1991 massive flood rescue and relief operation caught major international media attention which helped Bangladesh to get additional foreign aid. A brilliant military officer, General Bhuiyan commanded several brigades during his tenure in the Bangladesh Army. He served as the Principal Staff Officer for the Bangladeshi Prime Minister from 1991 to 1996. As a PSO, he influenced the former Prime Minister and her cabinet to send Bangladeshi military troops to several United Nations peace keeping missions. The Bangladesh Army is highly praised in the international arena for their UN peace keeping services.

After retiring from the Army, Shubid Ali Bhuiyan dedicated his life to social work in the greater Comilla district. With every flood, every tornado, and every other natural disaster, Bhuiyan extended his kind hand to the affected people of Comilla. He helped people with the little savings he had from his service in the Bangladesh Army. His kindness and generosity led him to take money out of his retirement fund to help the poor. He stands beside the people of the greater Comilla area in times of good and bad. His heart cries for the people and he wants to help more.

Shubid Ali Bhuiyan came to the realization that in order to make major changes in Daudkandi and Megna upazilla, he needs to represent the people of the Comilla-1 constituency in the Bangladesh Parliament. He ran for election in 2001 as an independent candidate from Comilla-2. His massive grass root popularity scared his opponent, the former minister, Dr. Khadaker Musharraf of BNP, a highly corrupt politician who went to jail in 2008 for corruption charges. Musharraf’s BNP thugs took control of the voting polls through violence and stole people’s votes. The people of Daudkandi could not exercise their civic rights to vote in the 2001 parliamentary election. In 2001, a mockery of democracy was orchestrated by the corrupt BNP policy maker. In 2001, Major General (Retd.) Shubid Ali Bhuiyan, was defeated by corruption, thugs, illegal money, and dirty politics. His defeat was a defeat of the people of the Comilla-1 constituency, and a defeat of democracy.

Even after the defeat, Gen. Bhuiyan has not given up his fight against corruption. He continues his struggle while extending his generous hand to the people of Daudkandi. In 2003, he joined the Bangladesh Awami League to unite a strong political force against corruption. He was nominated as a Member of the Bangladesh Awami League Advisory Council in 2005.

In December 2008, people of Daudkandi and Megna gave Shubid Ali Bhuiyan a landslide victory and send him to Bangladesh Parliament to represent them. During his last five years in the parliament, his contribution has reached both nationally and locally. Even with his busy schedule as a Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee of Energy and Power he never forgot the people of Daudkandi and Megla upazilla for a moment. Every week, he traveled to far corners of his constituency to listen to local problems and help where possible and also personally supervised all Govt constructions works. His onsite visits made sure there were no wastage of Govt fund and all funds are allocated properly.

From 2009 to 2013, Daudkandi and Megna upazilla (Comilla-1) has seen over 350 core takas of development work. Local people say, we have not seen this much rapid development work in last 100 years in Daudkandi and Megna. Shubid Ali Bhuiyan has dedicated his life for the people of Daudkandi and Megna. He has dream of a Daudkandi District and already given notice in the parliament several times.
