Party cochairman GM Quader, who has been appointed deputy opposition leader in the 11th parliament, also did not attend the programme as he said he did not get the invitation card.

Talking to UNB, GM Quader said Ershad could not join the function at Bangabhaban as he is sick. "Our chairman has been receiving treatment at Dhaka CMH since Saturday night.

GM Quader said Ershad may go to Singapore again on January 18 for receiving treatment.
