Jatiya Party wants polls under elected govt: GM Quader
Jatiya Party Co-Chairman GM Quader today said his party wants the parliamentary election to be held under the elected government as they did not get level playing field in the elections under any caretaker government.
“We did not get level playing field in the elections under any caretaker government. So, we want the polls under elected government,” he told a discussion marking Democracy Day at the party chairman’s Banani office here.
Jatiya Party Secretary General ABM Ruhul Amin Hawlader, Presidium Members Syed Abu Hossain Babla, Sunil Suvo Roy, Mujibul Haque Chunnu and Mashiur Rahman Ranga, among others, addressed the discussion with Party’s Dhaka City North unit President SM Faisal Chisti in the chair.
Quader said if BNP joins the election, Jatiya Party will join the polls from the grand alliance, he added.
He also said the Jatiya Party has preparation to take part in the election in all 300 parliamentary seats.
Speaking on the occasion, Ruhul Amin Hawlader said all political parties took part in the 1986 election except BNP. The party again boycotted the election in 2014.
He said it is not clear whether the party will join the 11th parliamentary election or not.
