Party General Secretary Mojibul Haque Chunnu said that Roshan Ershad does not have the power to exempt anyone from the Jatiya Party. He said, nowhere in the constitution can the co-chairman or the main sponsor declare himself as the chairman.
Chunnu said this at a press conference from the party’s Banani office around 2:30 on Sunday.
Roshan Ershad announced himself as the Chairman of Jatiya Party (JAPA) in a press conference at his home in Gulshan of the capital some time before this press conference of Chunnu.
In the press conference, Roshan said, ‘668 leaders and workers have resigned and there is a big crisis in the Karat party. In this situation of the party, GM Quader and General Secretary Mojibul Haque Chunnu were relieved from the responsibility of the chairman of the party according to the request of the leaders and workers and the constitution of the party.
Chunnu held a press conference immediately after Roshan Ershad’s announcement. Chunnu said, ‘GM is the chairman, I am the general secretary. Nowhere in the constitution can the co-chairman or the main sponsor declare himself the chairman. He has declared himself chairman three times before, and later withdrew. His announcement is undemocratic.’
Chunnu said that there is no reaction to such announcements, ‘We are not taking these things into consideration. Roshan Ershad is the chief sponsor, the team’s decorative title. There is no need to take action against him. They are not affiliated with the party, their decisions are not taken into consideration. They have no right to say or do anything.’
