A new political platform, Movement for Justice, started its journey on Wednesday with an aim to forge national unity to end the politics of division and vengeance.
Sanaul Haque Niru, chief coordinator of the platform and also a former Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal leader, came up with the announcement of the new platform’s launch at the Jatiya Press Club.Stating their platform’s 12 goals, Nirul said they want to bring a qualitative change in the country’s politics. “We want to practise positive, democratic and healthy politics.”
He said they want to get involved with Dr Kamal Hossain-led Jatiya Oikya Front to bring a qualitative change in politics. Niru was expelled from the JCD in the 80s before the election to Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu).
Dr Kamal Hossain was scheduled to address the launching programme as the chief guest, but he could not join it due to his illness.Speaking at the programme, Gonoshasthya Kendra Founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury said he recently gave wrong information about the Army Chief as his choice of word was wrong. “Did I commit treachery with it? I also admitted my fault immediately.”
He said the state now cannot see the real problem as it has now become sick and got affected with cataract. Zafrullah said there is no alternative to uniting people to get rid of the country’s current situation. “We’ve formed Jatiya Oikya Front led by Dr Kamal Hossain. Please join us if you want a peaceful and democratic Bangladesh.”
The pro-BNP intellectual said a fair and credible election will bring welfare for all, including the ruling party. “If I remain with this unity process, Sheikh Hasina will not be sent to jail if she loses the election.”Former adviser to the army-backed caretaker government Barrister Mainul Husein said the government is getting frightened following formation of Jatiya Oikya Front under the leadership of Dr Kamal Hossain.
He warned that the government may put its strong effort to frustrate the Oikya Front’s move to bring a change. Husein strongly opposed the filing a treason case against a freedom fighter like Dr Zafrullah even after he sought apology for his comment about the Army Chief.He claimed that there is now no rule of law in the country as politicians are now least bothered about it since their main focus is to plunder public money.
