Bikalpadhara Bangladesh president AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury turned down Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder and newly floated Jatiya Oikya Front leader Zafrullah Chowdhury’s request to join the front as the later met B Chowdhury in his Baridhara house in Dhaka on Monday night.
Bikalpadhara did not join the front of opposition political parties, launched on October 13, following disagreement over some issues.
After the meeting that lasted more than one hour from 9:30pm Zafrullah told journalists that they would stay and work together.
Bikalpadhara joint secretary general Mahi B Chowdhury said that Zafrullah expressed regret over the incident on October 13 as Gana Forum president Kamal Hossain was not present in his house after inviting Badruddoza Chowdhury.
Mahi said they told Zafrullah about Bikalpadhara’s firm stance that the party would not go for any unity with anti-independence forces and not to form unity for bringing a certain party to power without settling the issue of balance of power.
Zafrullah held the meeting with B Chowdhury from 9:30pm to 10:30pm, said B Chowdhury’s press secretary Jahangir Alam.
