Dhaka, July 23 (BAN/ AD): Jatiya Party (JaPa) Chairman GM Quader has said “The issued statement was handwritten and amateurish. It is unbelievable and unacceptable.” He was addressing media at party office.
Rowshan Ershad Monday night issued a statement on her official pad as deputy leader of the opposition in the House, saying GM Quader, brother of late party founder and chairman HM Ershad, has only been declared as acting chairman and his chairmanship will be decided as per party constitution.
The statement read “I have recently learned from various news sources that GM Quader has been declared as the chairman of the Jatiya Party, which actually is yet to be decided by a proper forum.”
GM Quader at press meet said “HM Ershad was like a father in our family. As such, Rowshan Ershad is like our mother. I am working as the acting president as per the directive of the founder of the party.”
Ershad, founder and chairman of the present parliamentary opposition Jatiya Party, breathed his last at 7.45am at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) on July 14. Following his death, GM Quader was announced as the new chairman of Jatiya Party on the Thursday of the same week.
