Gano Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain said his party will not join BNP in any greater national unity if Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami remains with the party.

Kamal made the announcement at a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club yesterday.Dr Kamal said, "I and our party won't join BNP, if Jamaat-e-Islami remains with it, but I don't know what other parties will do." 

"So far, as I know, Jamaat is no longer political a party as its registration has been cancelled," he added.He also said there is a progress in the initiative for forging a greater unity to ensure free, fair and inclusive national polls.

Replying to a question from journalists, who will lead the alliance if there is a greater unity, Kamal said he believes in joint leadership, not an individual's leadership.

He said they have got permission for holding a public rally at Gulistan's Mohanagar Natya Mancha on September 22 as part of their efforts to forge the national unity.

About the Awami League leaders' remarks on holding the trial of Col Taher in jail, he said it was held during the military rule 41 years back. "It's not logical to shift the court to jail citing such an instance. I think, the constitution has been violated with it." 

Mentioning that he has heard Khaleda Zia's health condition deteriorated, he said a sick person should not suffer this way. He also criticized the government for arresting and taking on remand those students who waged movements for quota reform and safe roads in recent days.
