bablu-bnpDhaka: "In parliamentary democracy the opposition is a shadow government. And prime minister is the leader of parliament. She is the leader of the opposition too. She must be consulted and no one went to her kick up a rumpus," said Jatiya Party (JP) secretary general Ziauddin Ahmed Bablu while addressing a press conference in Dhaka on Thursday.Responding to the question whether the prime minister is controlling Jatiya Party, Bablu made the comment.The press conference was organised by the party to reveal its stand on the present crisis that has been mounted over three JP lawmakers' resignation from the cabinet and electing the deputy leader of the opposition in parliament.JP chairman Hussain Muhammad Ershad was not present at the press conference.Bablu said JP leaders Moshiur Rahman Ranga and Tajul Islam Chowdhury were dropped from the party's presidium according to the party constitution.Earlier on Wednesday, JP chairman Ershad relieved Moshiur and Tajul from the presidium.
