Jatiya Party chairman GM Quader said that Hussein Muhammad Ershad was not just my elder brother. He was like my father and teacher. I watched the movie  on his lap, he taught me how to eat and how to bind the tie.

He said these with tears remembering late Ershad in his Kulkhani in Gulshan Azad Mosque in the city on Wednesday afternoon.

GM Quader said, he taught me how to over come difficulties in politics and how to deal with the crisis. He was like umbrella on our head. You pray for him.

Quader said, he established BKSP that's why today we get success in sports. Awami League is talking about making a village to town - Ershad has started it by established upazila.
