Senior Correspondent: GM Quader will discharge duties of chairman of Jatiya Party (JP) while Raushan Ershad will discharge the duties as the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament.
Jatiya Party Secretary General Moshiur Rahman Ranga, also the chief whip of the opposition, came up with the information at a press briefing at the JP chair’s Banani office on Sunday.
Amid conflicts over the post of party chairman and leader of the opposition, the leaders loyal to both GM Quader and Raushan had a meeting at a Baridhara Club on Saturday night and took some decisions to avoid the inevitable split in the party.
“The party is now united as there’s now no division in it. We had a controversy over the post of our party chairman, and we resolved it yesterday (Saturday). GM Quader will perform the responsibility of Chairman as per the directive of our late founder chairman HM Ershad,” Ranga told the press briefing.
Besides, he said, Raushan Ershad will discharge the duties of Leader of the Opposition in Parliament.
