Jatiya Oikya Front leader and Nagorik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna gave a list of 30 candidates to the media yesterday (Saturday). He said that this list is a list of candidates of Nagorik Oikya for the eleventh parliamentary election. When contacted, Mahmudur Rahman Manna said, "This is Nagorik Oikya`s candidates` list. A discussion will be held in Jatiya Oikya Front meeting in this regard. After the discussion, some will be nominated from Oikya Front on the basis of negotiation." But the unrest got created within Jatiya Oikya Front over Manna`s act. Many claimed such decision has been made without any discussion with the coalition. Several leaders of Oikya Front expressed dissatisfaction with Mahmudur Rahman Manna`s activities.
Oikya Front convener Dr. Kamal Hossain referred Mannan`s behavior as a form of audacity. In this context, he said, "It is surprising that how could he (Manna) provide such a list without any discussion with Oikya Front. I do not know anything about this. Surely we will discuss this in the Front meeting and ask an explanation from him."
Main partner of Jatiya Oikya Front BNP`s secretary -general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir expressed most resentful response over Manna`s activities. Mirza Fakhrul said, "It is not understandable that how he gave this list without discussing with anyone."
However, Mahmudur Rahman Manna refused to comment on such statements made by the leaders of Oikya Front. It is known that a meeting of Jatiya Oikya front will be held today (Sunday). It is also learned that Manna will be questioned on his trivial act in today`s meeting.
