Jatiya Party (JP) chairman HM Ershad on Saturday said there is no rift in the party at the moment.
Speaking at a discussion in Dhaka, he called upon the party leaders and workers to take preparations so that the party could assume power after strengthening its activities across the country.
"If all the JP lawmakers attend the party office regularly, the leaders and workers would be driven more to party activities," HM Ershad said while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion organised at the auditorium of the Institution of Engineers in the capital marking the 30th founding anniversary of JP.
JP presidium member and Leader of the Opposition Begum Raushan Ershad, presidium member and Water Resources Minister Barrister Anisul Islam Mahmud, presidium member Syed Abu Hossain Babla, MP, Fakhrul Imam, MP, SM Faisal Chisty, Haji Saifuddin Ahmed Milon and senior joint secretary general Advocate Rezaul Islam Bhuiyan spoke on the occasion.
Paying homage to late leaders of the party, including Kazi Zafar Ahmed, Begum Raushan Ershad said, "People of the country want to see Jatiya Party in power again. Let's forge a greater unity to revamp our party so that we could get back power again. We have to reap the harvest of victory in the coming Union Parishad polls by remaining vigilant in all the polling centres", according to UNB. - Idrak
