Awami League (AL) Presidium Member Mohammad Nasim claimed that Jatiya Oikya Front chief Kamal Hossain, who participated in the last national elections forming alliance with BNP, is actually acting for AL.
He made the remark during budget session for fiscal 2019-2020 at the national parliament on Tuesday.“He (Kamal Hossain) cleared the field for the AL and we scored goal in the empty ground. It was the strategy of BNP hiring him. They hired him for themselves, but he acted for us (AL),” former health minister said.
On October 13, 2018 Dr Kamal Hossain, also the president of Gano Forum, formed Jatiya Oikya Front, an anti-AL political alliance before the 11th parliamentary election.
Anti-AL forces including Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) joined the Front and took part in the last parliamentary election.
