News of JP’s central office being occupied is not true
A few people released from the Jatiya Party and some mercenaries came to the central office at 8 am on the closing day of Friday and placed wreaths at the portrait of party founder Hussain Muhammad Ershad. After that, they stayed for 10 to 12 minutes in the Dhaka Metropolis South room located on the ground floor of the office.
After talking to reporters outside the office, they left. There have been misleading reports in some media about some have taken over the Jatiya Party office. This news is false and fabricated and has nothing to do with reality.
Such a claim was made in a circular signed by Jatiya Party's joint office secretary Mahmud Alam on Friday (February 2).
It has been said that we have come across news in different media that Jatiya Party's Kakrail central office has been occupied. In fact those who had been released earlier on charges of anti-party activities came for a few minutes during the morning closing time.
It also said that Jatiya Party is united under the leadership of GM Quader across the country. Jatiya Party leaders and activists have been requested not to be misled by the misleading news of Kakrail central office capture.
It is to be noted that on January 28, Roushan Ershad dismissed Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader and General Secretary Mujibul Haque Chunnu from their posts. At the same time, she announced herself as the chairman of JP. Roushan claimed that she was forced to take this decision at the request of grassroot and central leaders.
After that incident, General Secretary of Jatiya Party Mujibul Haque Chunnu said that Roushan Ershad is the chief patron of the party. That post has no organizational power; the post is a rhetorical term. Roushan Ershad who has declared herself party chairman after sacking GM Quader, is not taking it into account.
Incidentally, Roushan Ershad has announced the date of the council of one party on March 2. Roushan declared General Secretary Kazi Mamunur Rashid paid tribute to Ershad's portrait in front of JP central office on this day.
