“Sir (Ershad) is keeping well and is sticking to his decision of not participating in elections. There is no room for any confusion on the matter,” Retd Major Khalek Akhtar told reporters at Ershad’s Baridhara residence on Thursday.The Jatiya Party chief had asked his party’s ministers and state ministers to quit from the ‘all-party’ cabinet by Thursday, Khalek said.Action will be taken against those who would not resign on charges of breaching party discipline.The party leaders would meet Ershad after submitting their resignations, the aide said.The former military dictator directed Jatiya Party’s ministers and state minister to resign on Wednesday, a day after the party announced to boycott polls.A strong contingent of security personnel were posted in front of the Jatiya Party chief’s residence on Wednesday.Ershad told reporters he would commit suicide if efforts were made to arrest him.
