Special envoy to the prime minister and Jatiya Party chairman Alhaj Hussein Muhammad Ershad on Monday ruled out the possibility of holding any mid-term election in the country.

‘The next general elections will be held timely and JP will take part,’ Ershad said while talking to journalists after laying foundation stone of Kazi Nazrul Islam auditorium on Mazida Khatun Women College premises at Palichara in Rangpur this afternoon as the chief guest.

Turning down the possibility of mid-term election, Ershad said that JP had already started organisational activities from Sylhet on October 1 to strengthen the party within the next two-three years time for taking part in the next general elections.

‘The existence of BNP is now in deep crisis as the party had imposed section 144 to restrict holding political programmes and committed injustice on JP when it was in power,’ Ershad said.

Presidium member of JP Khaled Akhter, its joint secretary general and member-secretary of district JP Hossain Mokbul Shahriar Asif, convener of its Rangpur city unit Mostafizur Rahman Mostafa, its member-secretary S M Yasser were present, among others.

Earlier, Ershad reached at Rangpur circuit house this noon on a three-day visit.
