Jatiya Party fails in UP elections too

Jatiya Party has been controversial in Rangpur for a long time. Although the district leaders said they would form a strong party, they could not turn around in the recent UP elections. Jatiya Party candidates have been defeated in the Chandanpat, Haridebpur, Sadyapushkurini and No. 1 Alampur UP elections of Taraganj Upazila.

Unofficial results declared on Tuesday night said, the JaPa candidates could not get close to the winning candidate in any of the four UPs. Although 80 percent of the voters took part in the election, JaPa candidates could not get a place in their preferred list.

Polls results showed that the winning candidate in Haridebpur got 11,006 votes. And the Jatiya Party candidate got 5,696 votes. The winning candidate in Sadyapushkarini UP got 6,570 votes while the Jatiya Party candidate got 6,127 votes. The winning Awami League candidate in Chandanpat UP got 5,608 votes while the Jatiya Party candidate got 5,038 votes. The winning Awami League candidate in Alampur UP No. 1 of Taraganj Upazila got 5,903 votes while the Jatiya Party candidate got 2,107 votes.

It has been learned that even though the candidates and supporters of other parties were busy in the campaign in all the three UPs on the occasion of the election, neither the candidates nor the supporters of the Jatiya Party were seen in the field. Voters said that Jatiya Party candidates failed due to a lack of public relations.

Rangpur district Jatiya Party general secretary SM Fakhar-uz-Zaman said the party was doomed in this election as the leaders and workers were not united. Our candidates did not get votes due to a lack of public relations.

"We are working to solve internal problems of the party," he added. Jatiya Party will soon regain its old position in Rangpur.
