Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad changed his decision on leaving the country for the better treatment at the very last moment. Party`s senior co-chairman Begum Rowshan Ershad and secretary general Mashiur Rahaman Ranga held several meetings yesterday (Tuesday) in this regard.
Because of Ershad`s obduracy, he was brought under strict surveillance at Combined Military Hospital-CMH. A special source said that his hospital room was shifted yesterday. This particular source confirmed that all of the modern telecommunication technologies are used in that room.
Meanwhile, strictness has been imposed for the visitors of CMH. A short list has also been given to the CMH authorities.
A close ally of Ershad told Bangla Insider, Ershad does not want to go abroad till the last day of the withdrawal of candidacy. According to him, if Ershad goes out of the country at this moment, disaster in JP would be inevitable. JP`s leadership can be totally transferred to someone else. And for this reason, he wants to stay in the country anyhow.
Meanwhile, JP secretary general Mashiur Rahaman Ranga has had a number of meetings with Ershad and Rowshan Ershad yesterday. The new secretary general negotiated with Ershad about the sharing of the seats.
It is known that efforts are being made to get Ershad`s consent on the issue that JP candidate will be active in the constituencies following the government`s will.
