JaPa vows to gain the people’s trust as opposition party in parliament

Jatiya Party (JaPa) acting Chairman GM Quader has said his party will not play the role of domesticated opposition in parliament.

He made the remark on Sunday after unveiling the cover of “Roktatto Rakhine”, a book written by JaPa Chairman’s Deputy Press Secretary, Delwar Jalali.

He said: “In the context of Bangladeshi politics, a government cannot be changed only because of unreliability and only through election is such a thing possible. Therefore JaPa will gain the trust of the people by remaining as the opposition party in parliament and doing well in the next election.”

“JaPa will not set foot in anyone’s game and will not play the role of domesticated opposition as well. We will speak in parliament according to the expectations of the common people,” Quader added.

The JaPa acting chairman further said: “The Rohingyas must be given citizenship and should be taken back by Myanmar, and for that, according to our Chairman HM Ershad’s demand, UN Peace Forces should be sent to Rakhine.”

Quader urged the world community to make sure that Rohigya communities get back their humanitarian and political rights.

JaPa Secretary General Moshiur Rahman Ranga, Professor Masuda M Rashid Chowdhury, and SM Faisal Chisty spoke at the program, among others.
