risingbd.com: Do you want to join with any other political parties?

Shahidul Haque Jamal: I am not thinking about it now.
 
risingbd.com: Do you want to play any role in the development in your electoral area.

Shahidul Haque Jamal: Of course. Becoming Member of the Parliament for three terms, I played an important role in the development of my locality and want to continue that.

risingbd.com: How do you continue your development works?

Shahidul Haque Jamal: I want to form a political party with some leaders and activists encouraged by Shaheed Ziaur Rahman. Discussion is underway in this regard. I hope a result will come soon. But I don`t want to say anything more about this.

risingbd.com: You are not staying in the party founded by former president Ziaur Rahman. How much do you follow his ideology?

Shahidul Haque Jamal: I stand firm in his principles but, I am no longer in the party for some opportunists. I want to say a real story in this regard. I went to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman in 1979. Then he told me, “Leaving business from Motijheel, if you come, you can join politics with me.” I promised him (Ziaur Rahman) and still I am following the words. From then, I did not go to Motijheel. I will not go there.

But, it is a matter of sorrow that business and black money earners get nomination now. Nomination paper is distributed for money which is baneful for the nation and country.

risingbd.com: Thank you so much for giving your valuable time.

Shahidul Haque Jamal: You are welcome.
