Jatiya Oikya Front will write another letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina over the election issue. Jatiya Oikya Front, trying to work with new enthusiasm, gave an ultimatum to BNP to exclude Jamaat. They wanted to free themselves from the previous controversy. Oikya Front convener Dr Kamal Hossain gave BNP secretary general an ultimatum to leave Jamaat last (Saturday) evening. Oikya Front is awaiting the formal announcement of BNP in this regard.
Multiple sources said that Jatiya Oikya Front held a meeting without BNP. It was decided in the meeting that if BNP cannot leave Jamaat, then Jatiya Oikya Front will start the work without BNP and with Bam Ganatantrik Jote, they will start a new movement in a new phase.
Subrata Chowdhury, one of the top leaders of Jatiya Oikya Front, said on the process of movement, first we will give a letter to the Prime Minister calling for a dialogue so that she can give her time. If the Prime Minister refuses the call of dialogue, then we will make public relations throughout the country. We will collect information and data about the rigging of the December 30 elections. Based on that information and data, we will arrange a national dialogue where all other parties and people from all walks of life will be invited even if the ruling party does not join. Through this national dialogue, we will announce the next program.
Mostafa Mohsin Montu, another leader of Jatiya Oikya Front, said that now we will do this to unite the people and highlight the irregularities of the elections to the international community. There is still no decision made as to the direct movement, he said.
However, many leaders of Jatiya Oikya Front said they are preparing for long-term movement. They think that the new government has just taken responsibility. At this moment, creating awareness among the people is more important than direct movement or violence. They will do that. At the same time, Jatiya Oikya Front wants to build a larger platform, from where all the parties could raise the demand for a non-partisan caretaker government. They do not want to keep Jamaat and Islamic parties on that stage. That is why BNP has been given an ultimatum to leave Jamaat. However, no specific decision has been made so far by BNP in this regard.
