Khelafat Majlis quit the BNP-led 20-party alliance as the party thinks it has become an "ineffective" opposition platform.

Acting secretary general advocate M Jahangir Hossain came up with the announcement from a press conference held at a restaurant in Dhaka after a meeting of the Majlish-e-Shura on Friday.

The meeting unanimously decided to part away with the 20-party alliance, he said during the briefing.

Jahangir said Khelafat Majlis has been there in the 20-party alliance for 22 long years but they noticed that the alliance has had no visible political activities and programs since 2019.

“The 20-party alliance was apparently made ineffective through the formation of Jatiya Oikya Front since 2018,” he said.

"Considering the ideological, organizational position and political situation, our party’s Majlis-e-Shura today decided that Khelafat Majlis will play a better role in the field with its own unique characteristics as an ideological organization. We’re severing relations with all political alliances, including the 20-party one, from now on," Jahangir said.

Around 200 members of Majlis-e-Shura joined the meeting with Moulana Ishaq in the chair.
