Update : 29 Nov 2013, 04:33 PM

Kazi Zafar Ahmed, the recently expelled Jatiya Party leader, has claimed that the party Presidium declared him the president and Golam Mosih the secretary general of the party.

A press release issued by Zafar’s Press Secretary Golam Mostafa claimed that a joint meeting of the party’s presidium members, vice chairman, lawmakers and executive committee members made the announcement on Friday afternoon.

The meeting was held at Golam Mosih’s Gulshan residence around 4pm.

According to the press release, JP Presidium Members Kazi Zafar Ahmed and Golam Mosih respectively were made the party chairman and secretary general till the next party council.

The press note also stated that the party rejected its present chairman HM Ershad for “being inconsistent in his positions”.

The meeting also fixed December 18 for holding the next council of the party as per section 37 of the party’s charter.

Earlier in the day, Kazi Zafar has made a sudden visit to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's Gulshan residence. Party insiders confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune.

The agenda of the sudden meeting could not be known immediately. However, sources close to Kazi Zafar said the meeting would discuss the current political situation of the country.

On Thursday, Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad and Kazi Zafar expelled each other from the party.

Ershad expelled Kazi Zafar for making frequent statements against him “violating the party charter.”

At 2pm, only an hour after Ershad had expelled him, Kazi Zafar sent him a suspension letter claiming that he was the “all-in-all” of the Jatiya Party, not Ershad.

He also claimed that a majority of the presidium members were with him and they would expel Ershad through the special council within a day or two.

On Saturday, Zafar stated that his leader Ershad had betrayed the nation by joining the polls-time government.

Recently, Golam Mosih has also resigned from the party.
