So far it looks like it's not the weather issue this time:

Quote from the NewAge article:

As the weather has improved significantly in the last few days helping the ground staff to make the stadiums ready, officials of the tournament committee have started whining in different tone.


‘The divisional sides are reluctant to play any match before the Eid-break. We have little choice other than agreeing with them,’ said Hafizur Rahman, the member-secretary of the tournament committee.
People in the cricket fraternity said, the failure of the BCB to start the league anyway before the Eid-break, means they will not be able to complete it by the second week of December.

It means the national players will miss at least the last three or four games, which in effect will ruin the attraction of the top league during its climax period. Nobody will care for the National League once the national team starts the series against New Zealand in December, said the players and organisers.

‘So, what is the point to become so enthusiastic over the league? It is going to remain the same it was in the last eight years,’ said an organiser asking not to be named."
