Jatiya Party (JP) Chairman GM Quader on Tuesday said the press release of party Senior Co-Chairman Raushan Ershad regarding her defiance to admit him as party chief is ‘not reliable and acceptable’.
“There is not rift in the party. The Jatiya Party has been conducting its political activities unitedly. There is no conflict or division within the party regarding the question of the leadership,” he said.He made the remarks while talking to reporters at the party president’s political office in the capital’s Banani area.
Earlier, Raushan Ershad said she does not accept GM Quader as chairman of the party through a press release on her official pad issued yesterday (Monday night).
In the release, she claimed, “It is a whimsical decision to make him party’s new chairman without discussions in the party”, adding that: “Opinion from the party’s presidium members was not taken before making GM Quader as chairman of the party.”
Jatiya Party secretary general Moshiur Rahman Ranga declared GM Quader, the younger brother of HM Ershad, who died recently, as the new chairman of the party at a press conference in the capital on July 18.
