It is impossible to win in the elections without forming an alliance, he said
Jatiya Party acting chairman GM Quader has said his party will lead an alliance in the coming days, which will form the government.
“Jatiya Party will lead an alliance in the future, and that alliance will be able to form the government,” he said at an organizational meeting of Jatiya Party’s Rangpur and Rajshahi division units at a Motijheel community centre on Tuesday.
All major parties are contesting elections by forming alliances, since it is impossible to win in the polls without a strong alliance, GM Quader said, reports BSS.
"But small parties face existential crisis after participating in the polls in alliance with the big parties," he said.
GM Quader said their party can independently lead an alliance only by strengthening its organizational capacity further. “Jatiya Party can govern the country with the people’s support in the days to come.”
He said their party has become stronger by facing adverse situations over the last 29 years since it quit power.
GM Quader said he wants to run the party as per its constitution and take suggestions from the grassroots leaders and activists.
“I want to take the party forward with the support and confidence of its general workers and supporters. I do not believe in authoritarian politics,” he added.
Jatiya Party Secretary General Moshiur Rahman Ranga said though they contested the December 30 election under the Awami League-led grand alliance, the ruling party’s attitude towards Jatiya Party has been unacceptable.
Jatiya Party is united whereas Awami League and BNP are facing serious intra-party conflicts, Ranga said.
“There are no conflicts and divisions within Jatiya Party," he said. "We are united under the leadership of GM Quader as per the directive of our Chairman HM Ershad."
