 Ershad’s youngest son Shahata Jarab Eric said, “I am the son of former President Hussein Muhammad Ershad.” I don’t have a father today. On this occasion, my uncle GM Quader has been making news against me and my mother Bidisha Ershad for the last two days, reports risingbd.com.
 Yesterday Eric made the remarks at a press conference at Ershad’s President Park residence in the capital’s Baridhara and said, “Uncle GM Quader has been conspiring in greed for help since his father’s death. He is still conspiring. I demand his exemplary punishment from the Prime Minister.
 Eric said, ‘the allegation of money laundering abroad against my mother is baseless and it is a conspiracy of my uncle GM Quader, reports Daily Samakal.
 Kazi Mohammad Mamunur Rashid, chairman of the trust left by Hussein Muhammad Ershad said Eric was the son of former president and founding chairman of the Jatiya Party Hussein Muhammad Ershad. It is absurd, hateful and rude to question his birth.
 “GM Quader is involved in a conspiracy against Eric on the eve of the former president’s second death anniversary,” he said. We will go to court against this conspiracy, there will be proof that Eric is a child. ‘
 He said, in the last two days, thousands of leaders and activists of the country have expressed their anger against the false news. If there was no lockdown, they would have come to Dhaka to protest. On July 14, the second death anniversary of Ershad, you will see a storm of protests from leaders and activists.
