Change to avert confusion: Ershad

Change to avert confusion: Ershad

Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad today said he removed ABM Ruhul Amin Hawlader from the post of JP’s secretary general to avert confusion about division in the party. Ershad added he brought the change as many people inside and outside the JP think that confusion and division remain between him and his wife Raushan Ershad, a senior presidium member of the party.  “Therefore, I made the decision of appointing Ziauddin Ahmed Bablu as Jatiya Party secretary general in place of Hawlader in a bid to reduce confusion among the party...

Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition

Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition

If the ongoing upazila elections are taken as the barometer to evaluate the popularity of the country's political parties, Jatiya Party, the main opposition in the parliament, has been mercilessly rejected by the voters. The party backed-candidates were able to win only two out of 209 chairmen posts in the elections held so far. Even the United People's Democratic Force (UPDF), a regional political party in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, has fared better than the "main opposition". Candidates blessed by the UPDF have won three chairmen posts.   The northern districts--Rangpur, Nilphamari, Lalmonirhat, Thakurgaon, Kurigram, and Gaibandha-- were considered to be the bastions of the JP, which is led by...

A Dhaka court today ordered further investigation into the murder of Maj Gen Abul Manzur even though the trial is now at the final stage for pronouncing verdict.

Special Public Prosecutor Asaduzzaman Khan Rochi submitted the petition during the closing arguments this morning. “While scrutinising the charge...

STRANGER THAN FICTION

Overpowering “Ershad Syndrome”

BANGLADESH is at war with itself. Interestingly, the political crisis, social disorder and economic uncertainties the country has been experiencing since long are not ideological or political by nature. The adoption of “secularism” and “socialism;” one-party rule; successive military takeovers; or even the adoption of Islam as the “state religion” were anything but ideology-driven. They simply reflected the ruling elites' political expediency, and their desperate quest for legitimacy. This article is a sequel to two of my earlier op-eds, one...
