Leaders of Raushan Ershad-led the Jatiya Party have announced to hold its national council on March 9.

Jatiya Party chief patron Raushan Ershad announced the date after a meeting at her Gulshan residence on Sunday.  

Earlier, Mamunur Rashid, secretary general of the faction, said that the council will be held on March 2.

Referring to the conference as the “10th National Council of Jatiya Party”, Raushan Ershad said: "There are many formalities in the capital before the holy month of Ramadan. Besides, we have changed the date as we did not get a suitable place for the conference. The 10th National Council of the Jatiya Party will be held on March 9.”

Amid growing resentment among the party rank and file over its debacle in this month’s parliamentary election, Jatiya Party Chief Patron Raushan Ershad on January 28 declared herself as the chairman of the party, relieving the current party chief and secretary general from their posts.

She also appointed Jatiya Party presidium member Kazi Mamunur Rashid as the secretary general of the party.

“According to Article 20-1 of the party's constitution, I have relieved GM Quader and Mujibul Haque Chunnu from the posts of party chairman and secretary general respectively at the request of the party leaders and workers to overcome the ongoing crisis (within the party)," she said.

Raushan, the widow of party founder HM Ershad and sister-in-law of GM Quader, said she also took charge of the party chairman at the request of party leaders and followers.
