Krishak Sramik Janata League President Abdul Kader Siddique has asked Gono Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain to give him till Monday, to announce about his decision to join the Jatiya Oikya Front. 

Siddique was speaking at a program organized by his party, to observe the Jail Killing Day, at the Engineers’ Institution Bangladesh yesterday.

Dr Kamal, also the Jatiya Oikya Front chief attended the program. 

Addressing the event, Siddique said he would take time until Monday morning to consider whether Krishak Sramik Janata League would join the Oikya Front. 

“I am asking you (Dr Kamal) to allow me till Monday to announce my decision. I, along with my party members, will formally visit you on Monday and let you know about our decision,” he added. 

The Krishak Sramik Janata League leader was supposed to announce his joining the Jatiya Oikya Front, from this program. 

Siddique further said the front got their victory by sitting with Awami League. “The party that denied any political dialogue for the last five years agreed to a dialogue within no time after Dr Kamal had sent a letter; this is a victory for the front.”

Other Oikya Front leaders, including Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rab) President ASM Abdur Rab and Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Zafrullah Chowdhury and Nagorik Oikya Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna were present at the program, among others.

Criticizing Awami league’s recent measures of political dialogue Manna said: “People of the country are very much conscious about the current political situation and the dialogue was initiated to create a disappointing situation for them.

“An Awami League leader in one place said they are encouraging dialogue, and later said there would be no dialogue after November 7.

“As you had called for a dialogue, so listen to us, we would come again for talks. You would never be able to shut the door. We have much more to say and you have to listen to us.”

ASM Abdur Rab demanded the release of all political arrestees.

“If your government could release a death sentence convict and send him abroad then why the political arrestees would not be released ahead of election?”

Dr Kamal Hossain in his speech said: “We need to organize all the people in a unit as like it was done by the four national leaders under Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. We need to establish a Bangladesh that was dreamt before and during Liberation War.”

He also said: “In the history of Bangladesh, the country saw a number of attempts made to destroy democracy in the country. The attempts are still going on right now and would be continued in future. But these attempts were never successful in the past and neither will be in future.” 

On November 3, 1975, four national leaders and heroes of the country's Liberation War – Syed Nazrul Islam, Tajuddin Ahmad, Captain Mansur Ali and AHM Quamruzzaman – were assassinated inside the then Dhaka Central Jail.

The four leaders played a key role in forming the Mujibnagar government in exile that led the Liberation War of 1971 with Syed Nazrul Islam as the acting president, Tajuddin Ahmad as the prime minister, Mansur Ali as the finance minister, and AHM Qamruzzaman as the home, relief and rehabilitation minister.
