JS begins 7th session tomorrow

The ninth Jatiya Sangsad goes into its seventh session tomorrow without main opposition BNP.
BNP will not only refrain from joining the ensuing session, it is also thinking of resigning en-masse from the JS in protest against the government's 'misrule' and 'repression' on opposition, a BNP leader said.
According to the directive of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, resignation letters of most of the 35 lawmakers of the party were collected in last few days, added the leader, seeking anonymity. Five or six MPs are now staying abroad.
After being 'evicted' on November 13 from Dhaka Cantonment house, Khaleda directed the opposition chief whip to collect the letters.
Opposition Chief Whip Zainul Abdin Farooque is likely to hold a press briefing today to explain why they would not return to the JS session.
On November 29, Farooque at a press briefing rejected Speaker Abdul Hamid's call to return to parliament.
BNP and its allies Jamaat-e-Islami and Bangladesh Jatiya Party have been boycotting parliament sessions since the last budget session after joining for a day to protest the closure of Daily Amar Desh and the arrest of its Acting Editor Mahmudur Rahman.
