Jatiya Party presidium member Kazi Firoz Rashid said, according to the party charter GM Quader is the Chairman of the party. Declaring Raushan Ershad as chairman is illegal.
He said these while briefing the newsmen during joint meeting of the party presidium members and parliament members at party chairman’s Banani office in the capital on Friday evening.
Kazi Firoz Rashid said, as the party chairmen HM Ershad appointed opposition leader, deputy leader and chief whip after issuing letters. It is the jurisdiction of the party chairman. HM Ershad never held parliamentary committee meeting. Besides it is not mentioned in the charter about holding parliamentary committee meeting. Jatiya Party Chairman Golam Mohammad (GM) Quader will be the opposition leader. In the presidium meeting all the members present supported GM Quader to be the opposition leader. There is nothing to be misguided.
The joint meeting started at 5 pm presided over by Jatiya Party Chairman Golam Mohammad Quader. At that time interviews of the nomination seekers were taken for the upcoming Rangpur-3 by-election.
Kazi Firoz Rashid, Zia Uddin Ahmed Bablu, Syed Abu Hosen Babla, Hafiz Uddin Ahmed, Golam Kibria Tipu and others were present in the presidium and parliamentary members’ joint meeting.
