Another  split of  Jatiya Party (JP) as it appears,  has become imminent as only four out of 34 members of parliament (MP) of the party attended the view exchange meeting of party chairman HM Ershad at Emanuel Centre  in city's Gulshan area on Wednesday. All the JP MPs were invited at the function.
Party chairman HM Ershad   said    at a view exchange meeting of district  level leaders and activists on the day that the party was in crisis.
He was visibly annoyed over the absence of  party MPs at his function.  Referring to  the January 5 controversial elections he said, " I don't want to discuss anything about the election today. What the chairman says should be treated as right. Those who have joined the one-sided election should be identified," he said. Ershad said those who have ignored his directive , were not required in the party.  Referring to the absence of the 30 MPs   who did not turn up to his view exchange function, he said  whether they were outside the party discipline .    He said the conspiracy to  split the party has to be resisted. He said he was making a final call to them to return to him or face departure from politics. There were slogans  demanding expulsion  of the betrayers when the function was in progress.Ershad said that he wanted to give  another chance to those who joined the election defying his directives. He said he would take the responsibility of those who had withdrawn their nomination papers  responding to his instruction.  He asked the district  level leaders to extend support to the party candidates in the forthcoming Upazila polls.  He said that he would start organizational tour from February 20.
It was for the first time that Ershad made public appearance   before the media and also before his party leaders and activists since he was taken to the  Combined Military Hospital (CMH) on  December 12.
The function was also addressed by party secretary general Ruhul Amin Hawlader, MP.  Ruhul Amin Hawlader speaking at the function  said those who have betrayed  with Ershad would cease to exist in politics.  He also urged Ershad not to forgive the betrayers of the party.   A total  of   about 200 JP men had withdrawn their  nomination papers   in response to his directives.  But a  a group of JP leaders  under Begum Raushan Ershad  joined the  one sided elections on January 5.  The absence of  30 MPs  on Wednesday's programme  is seen as a demonstration of the sharp division between Ershad and Begum Ershad.
It should be recalled that JP suffered a split centering participation in the January 5 elections.  Presidium member former Prime minister Kazi  Zafar Ahmed floated JP  with him as its chief.  Earlier, the party suffered two splits- one was headed by Anwar Hossain Manju while another  by Naziur Rahman Manju. The faction headedby Naziur Rahman Manju is known as BJP which is now headed  by Andalib Rahman Partha.
