Jatiya Oikyafront leader and Ganoforum President Kamal Hossain said, Oikyafront’s participation in the 11th Parliamentary election allied with Jamaat was a wrong decision.

He said this after a meeting with party's central committee leaders at the Ganofaram office in the capital's Motijheel on Saturday afternoon.

He said, “I did not know the existence (withBNP alliance) of Jamaat when I agreed to the consensus.” He doesn’t want to do politics with Jamaat, he also said.

Ganoforum General Secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu said in the written speech that the wrong unsettled mistakes in rapid forming of the Jatiya Oikyafront will be amended and a strong national unity will be created for the future.

Asked the unintentional error is what is meant and whether it is meant to unity with Jamaat. Kamal replayed, you have given a good example. I'll also think it, yes.

“I said to Already Publicly, that brother I did not know that. 25 of Jamaat have been nominated. When I agreed, it was not made me informed. At least in my opinion (going to elections with Jamaat) that was a mistake.”

Asked about the position of Jamaat, Mustafa Mohsin Montu said, “We have no intention do politics allied Jamaat. We didn’t do it in the past; neither at present or in the future.”

Regarding whether the Jatiya Oikyafront formation with Jamaat is unintentional wrongdoing and whether the BNP will be forced to leave the Jamaat. Kamal Hossain said, I think that the BNP may be forced to leave Jamaat.

Asked if you will be in the Jatiya Oikyafront if Jamaat is with the BNP, he said, I want to say it clearly that we will not do any politics with Jamaat. We would like to address the BNP immediately about the issue of Jamaat.

Quoting the national election, he said that there was no consensus among the people about basic issues. There is no difference on that Parliament should be formed by a fair election. But what happened on 30th you have received in the newspapers.

In the interest of the country, respecting the constitution, the government can decide, it is possible, Kamal demanded. Kamal said, 'If they want, they can hold an election within two or three months.'

Besides, the National Council of Ganoforum will be held in Dhaka on 23rd and 24th March, Dr. Kamal Hossain informed.
