Chairman of the opposition party Ghulam Muhammed Quader has clarified that Jatiya Party is not with Awami League-led Grand Alliance any more.
He said this while addressing as the chief guest at the National Hindu Representative Conference organized by the Bangladesh National Hindu Mahazot at Mahanagar Natyamanch in the capital on Friday (September 16).
GM Quader said, “Jatiya Party is not in alliance with Awami League now. So there is no question of remaining with Awami League. Since the day, we have been working as an opposition party, we are no longer with the Awami League, we are not in the alliance.”
He said, “Once we were with Awami League, we elected together. Awami League leaders and activists worked for us, we also worked for them. There was a friendly relation among us, still are somewhat. So I appreciated their good work. Now if they are not working in the interest of the people, why should we stay with them?”
GM Quader, Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Parliament, said, “We are always in favor of the country and the people. In this case, if Awami League really does good work, then we will be with them, as we were. And if we lose confidence in them, if people lose confidence in them, then we may not be with them in future.”
A fair election is not possible through EVMs, Jatiya Party Chairman said, “We want a fair election. That is not possible through EVMs. If there are EVMs, it will be a rigged election, the government will be able to pass whoever it wants. EVMs are peaceful rigging machines. We think there will be no acceptable election through EVMs.”
