Jatiya Party, which is participating in Bangladesh’s upcoming 12th general election, will announce its election manifesto on Thursday.
JaPa secretary general Mujibul Haque Chunnu will formally unveil the party manifesto from its Banani party office at 12:00 noon on Thursday, said a statement issues by Jatiya Party chairman’s press secretary Khandakaer Delwar Jalali on Wednesday.
At the ceremony, top leaders of the party will attend, the statement said.
On December 17, Chunnu said his party will contest in 283 constituencies as part of their efforts to make the election more competitive and meaningful.
‘We’re participating in the polls overcoming all hurdles. There is no pressure. If there was pressure, other parties would also join. We are a unique party and we have prepared our own roadmap,’ he told reporters.
The ruling party – Awami League said that it has given up 26 seats for the Jatiya Party in the January 7 national election.
‘If we can win the maximum number of seats then we will be happy. We will keep fighting. In some areas, there will be some strategies. I don’t want to share now. I won’t share my party’s strategies,’ Chunnu said recently justifying why they are contesting in 283 constituencies.
Opposition leader and Jatiya Party chief patron Raushan Ershad and Raushan’s son Rahgir Al Mahi (Saad) Ershad are not in the race this time.
