NAP, NDP seek to ally with Bikalpa Dhara

STAFF REPORTER

Both the Bangladesh National Awami Party (NAP) and the National Democratic Party (NDP), which snapped ties with the BNP-led 20-Party Alliance, now want to ally with Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh to forge unity of democratic and nationalists forces ahead of the next general election. Leaders of the two parties expressed solidarity with Bikalpa Dhara president Prof. AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury when they met him at his Baridhara residence barely two days after they walked out of the BNP-led alliance. Briefing reporters, Bikalpa Dhara leader Mahi B Chowdhury said they have decided to extend the Jukta Front by involving both NAP and NDP.

He also said that the working committees of the three parties would give priority to opinions of young leaders to determine the plan of action of the Jukta Front.  A formal announcement of the expansion of the alliance will be issued after a press conference, he added. Jebel Ghani said: “Mahi Chowdhury is our guardian and we’ll work together under his leadership to hold a free and fair election.”

“We took the decision after understanding the limitations of the 20-Party Alliance. We share a similar political ideology and mindset with Chowdhury,” he added. NAP secretary general Golam Mostafa Bhuiyan said that they have agreed to work with Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh. “We’ll unite all democratic and nationalist forces,” he added. “It was a courtesy meeting with Prof. Badruddoza Chowdhury. We hope other nationalist forces will join us,” he expressed hope. Bhuiyan also said that Chowdhury has urged all democratic and nationalist forces to unite before the next poll. Bangladesh NAP president Jebel Rahman Ghani, NDP president Khandaker Golam Mortuza, secretary general Manzur Hossain Isa and Bikalpa Dhara leaders Mahi B Chowdhury and Omar Faruk, among others, were present at the hour-long meeting which began at 4:30pm.

The Bangladesh NAP and the NDP quit the 20-Party Alliance two days after the BNP brought together Dr Kamal Hossain’s Gono Forum and three other parties to launch a new alliance called Jatiya Oikya Front on Saturday.
