A 'tea party' of politicians has been ‘spoiled’ as police suddenly barged in the party arranged at the Uttara residence of JSD leader ASM Abdur Rab on Thursday night.
Leaders from different political parties were attended the party which they called a post-Eid gathering. But the event was cut short due to the intrusion of police.
The veteran politicians included Bikalpadhara chief AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury, Krishak Sramik Janata League (KSJL) chief Kader Siddiqui and Nagorik Oikyo Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna.
The politicians had gathered at Rab's house in northern Dhaka on Thursday night. JSD leaders have described the assembly of the politicians as a normal 'gathering over tea'.
The other attendees included Biplabi Workers Party chief Saiful Haque, Ganaforum presidium members Subrata Chowdhury and AOM Shafiullah, Bangladesher Samajtantrik Dal (BaSaD) General Secretary Khalekuzzaman and leader Bazlur Rashid Firoz, JSD General Secretary Abdul Malek Ratan, Bikalpadhara Joint Secretary General Mahi B Chowdhury and General Secretary of citizens' platform 'Sujon' Badiul Alam Majumder.
Majumder told that he went to Rab's home around 8pm on invitation. But everyone left around 11pm following dinner after the police arrived.
He claimed this event was a post-Eid gathering. "I never thought I would face this kind of situation at this event."
