Jatiya Party (Ershad)


Introduction
Bangladesh earned its independence through a long bloody freedom struggle but the fruits of independence have not yet been achieved by the people. The people have given their lives, shed blood, continued their movement and even changed governments with the high hope of having a happy and prosperous country, economic emancipation, social peace security, right to franchise and so on, but all their sacrifices have gone in vain. All these, however, have established a truth- as to which political party is their real friend, which party can efficiently and successfully run the country and achieved meaningful development for the nation. Since independence till now, by all yardsticks of judgement and considering the progress and development achieved in the spheres of national life, it has been proved beyond doubt that Jatiya Party's rule of 9 years has been the golden era of development for Bangladesh since independence. In the backdrop of this success and experience, Jatiya Party strongly believes that it can form the government with the people's mandate in the coming elections to fulfil the hopes and aspirations of the nation. Jatiya Party presents the following manifesto to build a new Bangladesh:
