Senior Correspondent: Jatiya Oikyafront chief Dr Kamal Hossain has promised not to do politics with political party Jamaat-e-Islami that opposed the War of Liberation in 1971.
Dr Kamal came up with the remark at a press conference at Gono Forum’s Arambagh central office after a meeting of party’s central committee on Saturday afternoon.
“We won’t do politics with Jamaat. We never did politics with them in the past and are not still doing that and won’t do in future,” said Kamal, also the Gono Forum president.
“I’ve already publicly said I was not aware of Jamaat candidates in the election. When I gave consent… I was not informed about Jamaat. I think you (journalists) can say it was a mistake”, he said.
Replying to a question, Kamal said they will mount pressure on BNP to drop Jamaat from its alliance to keep the Oikyafront intact and make it stronger further.
