A new political coalition, Ganatantra Mancha, which is comprised of seven old and new parties, was formed on Monday.

The parties are: Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD), Nagarik Oikya, Biplabi Workers Party, Ganasanghati Andolon, Gana Adhikar Parishad, Bhasani Anushari Parishad and Rashtra Sangskar Andolon.

JSD President ASM Abdur Rob announced the launch of the alliance at a press conference at Dhaka Reporters Unity in the capital city. He said the platform has made its debut, as it has become a matter of historical necessity.

President of Nagarik Oikya Mahmudur Rahman Manna said that state power is now being used only to amass a fortune. There has been a widening gap between the rich and the poor in society due to economic divide.

Leaders at the news conference said the alliance has been formed with a specific objective to bring down the government against the backdrop of the country’s present political situation.

It has a set of specific reform proposals on state, constitution, constitutional bodies and form of government, they said.

Biplabi Workers Party’s General Secretary Saiful Haque, Ganasanghati Andolon’s Chief Coordinator Zonayed Saki, Gana Adhikar Parishad’s Convener Reza Kibria, Member Secretary Nurul Haque Nur, Bhasani Anushari Parishad’s Convener Rafiqul Islam and Rashtra Sangskar Andolon’s Coordinator Hasnat Quayum, among others, were present on the occasion.
