JaPa to choose future leaders through council: Raushan

Prothom Alo English Desk | Update:

Jatiya Party senior co-chairman Raushan Ershad. Prothom Alo File PhotoJatiya Party senior co-chairman Raushan Ershad on Tuesday said their party's future leadership will be decided through its nation council, reports UNB.

"The date of the council will be fixed very soon through discussions. Jatiya Party's future leadership will be decided through it," she said.

Ten days after HM Ershad reinstated his younger brother GM Quader as Jatiya Party chairman in his absence, Raushan came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion at Gulshan community centre marking the 36th founding anniversary of the party’s student body, Jatiya Chhatra Samaj.

In a dramatic move on 6 April, JaPa chairman Ershad reinstated his younger brother GM Quader as party chairman in his absence.

He took the decision just two days after Quader was reinstated as the party's co-chairman, fueling the party's internal feud.

The eccentric former military ruler, known for frequently changing his decisions, relieved GM Quader of Jatiya Party's co-chairman post and its organisational duty on 22 March.

Raushan, however, claimed that there is no division in the party as its leaders and activists are united under the leadership of party chairman HM Ershad.
She also said her husband Ershad's health condition is now much better than earlier.

Raushan, also the deputy leader of the opposition in parliament, asked the leaders and activists of Chhatra Samaj to build them as worthy citizens of the country through acquiring proper knowledge and hard work.

She urged the student leaders to strengthen their organisation at all educational institutions across the country, including Dhaka University.

Raushan instructed the Chhatra Samaj leaders to concentrate on their studies instead of wasting time on social media so that they can contribute to the development of politics and the country.
