Veteran freedom fighter Kader Siddique on Thursday gave an ultimatum that his party Krishak Sramik Janata League (KSJL) will leave the Jatiya Oikya Front by June 8, if the prevailing division and inconsistency among the allies of this political platform are not solved within one month.
He came up with this announcement in a press conference held at the KSJL Motijheel central party office on Thursday noon.Kader Siddique said, “After the election (11th general election), there raised many questions among the countrymen regarding some activities of Oikya Front. The leaders of the alliance failed to do their works in an appropriate way.”
He also criticised that authorities concerned in the alliance failed to stand besides the deceased and the injured in the violence during the last national election.
Criticising the 11th national election, Kader Siddique said, “There staged a nasty drama in the name of election on December 30, 2018.”
Kader also confessed that he got embarrassed and failed to answer about the oath-taking of BNP and Gano Forum MPs-elect, when asked by people.
Kader said, “Gano Forum MPs-elect Sultan Mansur and Mokabbir Khan took their oath as parliamentarians despite the Oikya Front rejected the election. Dr Kamal, then, suspended Sultan Mansur and said ‘get out’ to Mokabbir Khan. Later, we saw that Mokabbir Khan also joined Gano Forum national council. People are confused of these all.”
“Later, five BNP MPs-elect also took their oath as Member of Parliament. This have made people confused,” He addedKSJL general secretary Habibur Rahman Talukder, among others, was present at the press conference.
On November 5, Kader Siddique and his party Krishak Sramik Janata League (KSJL) joined the Jatiya Oikya Front, an anti-Awami League (AL) political alliance led by Dr Kamal Hossain, formed on October 13, 2018 before the 11th parliamentary election.
