When different circles demanded the removal of Jamaat from BNP, in such time Jamaat threatened BNP saying if BNP does not leave Dr. Kamal Hossain, it will be forced to rethink whether they will be with the 20-party alliance. Former 20- party coordinator Nazrul Islam Khan called a meeting of the alliance. He contacted with the partners of 20- party alliance. At the meeting, Jamaat said the main cause of the misery of BNP and the alliance is Dr. Kamal Hossain. Jamaat gave the condition that BNP cannot maintain unity with the alliance keeping Oikya Front with them. BNP will have to choose one between the two alliances.
Sources in BNP informed that after the December 30 election, the relation between Jamaat and BNP has deteriorated. Jamaat believes because of Oikya Front BNP is facing such a situation. BNP could not take actions. Jamaat wants to separate BNP from Oikya Front. That is why they said that they would rethink about their unity with 20 party alliance if BNP does not exclude Dr. Kamal and Jatiya Oikya Front from the alliance. There has been no meeting of 20-party since the election.
