The understanding between the AL and JP was reached in a series of meetings held among top brasses of the two parties at different locations in London from July 18 to 23.
According to sources in the UK, various aspects of the country’s present political situation, the upcoming parliamentary and local body elections, post election strategies, the state of emergency, were discussed at the meetings among other issues.
AL President Sheikh Hasina, her sister Sheikh Rehana, JP Acting Chairman Anisul Islam Mahmud and JP presidium member Ziauddin Ahmed Bablu attended the meetings mediated by JP chairman HM Ershad, the sources said.
