Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Tuesday claimed there is no division inside the party and there is no conflict over its leadership also.
“Raushan Ershad is like our mother. With the directive of the Jatiya Party founder HM Ershad, I’m now working as its chairman as the party leaders have declared me chairman according to the party constitution,” he said.GM Quader made the statements while speaking to reporters at his Banani office in the capital.
“I have no problem with the name whatever they (Jatiya Party men) address me. Performing my duties in the party is the main thing. If any problem arises, we will resolve it through discussion,” he added.
Meanwhile, the party’s senior co-chairman Raushan Ershad claimed that GM Quader cannot be declared as chairman of the party without decision of party forum.
In a statement issued on Monday night, Raushan Ershad said, “GM Quader is still acting chairman of the party and accordingly, he will perform his responsibility till the decision of the party forum.”
“It is a whimsical decision to make him the party’s new chairman without any discussions. And no decision has yet been taken to declare him chairman of Jatiya Party,” she also added.
On Thursday, 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.
