The acting chairman of Jatiya Party (JaPa), Ghulam Mohammed Quader, said that whether JaPa will be with government or take the role of the opposition that will be decided on Thursday.

He said these at a press conference on Wednesday noon after the meeting of the presidium and newly elected MPs.

GM Quader said, “We took part in the election with the Grand Alliance. Therefore, in the interest of the state, JaPa will decide according to the decision of the Grand Alliance.”

Earlier, the presidium had demanded that the Treasury be fully placed with the government on the bench. And otherwise it will be in full opposition team. Most leaders including Masud Parvez Sohel Rana, Advocate Sheikh Sirajul Islam, Syed Abu Bakla, Azam Khan, Salma Islam, Selim Osman and others gave strong speech to the demand.

But at press conference, GM Quader informed, “After the meeting with the Grand Alliance on Thursday, the decision will take where the country's second largest party will go.”
