BNP on Wednesday alleged that the proposal for a discussion in Parliament over the Supreme Court’s verdict on the 16th amendment was moved to put the House against the judiciary as its opponent.
“A proposal was made in Parliament today (Wednesday) for holding a discussion on the 16th amendment verdict. We think it’s a move to stand the House against the judiciary as its opponent. We strongly condemn it,” said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
Speaking at a discussion programme, he further said, “The country’s basic pillars are being destroyed intentionally by belittling the Chief Justice and the judges in such a manner.”
BNP arranged the programme at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking party Senior Vice-chairman Tarique Rahman’s 10th ‘jail release day’.
Fakhrul alleged that the government is ruining all the institutions in a planned way as it wants to turn the nation into a dependent and weak one.
He strongly criticised the government for obstructing BNP’s central relief team in Cox’s Bazar from distributing relief materials among the helpless Rohingyas who have taken shelter there in the face of persecution on them by Myanmar security forces.
“We express our hatred as you didn’t allow to do a noble work like distribution of relief,” said the BNP leader.
He questioned the Prime Minister as to why her government has deprived the hungry Rohingyas of food and other relief from BNP.
Earlier on Tuesday, a high-profile BNP delegation, led by Mirza Abbas, went to Cox’s Bazar to provide humanitarian assistance to the Rohingyas.
The team was scheduled to visit the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar’s Ukhia and give the hapless Rohingyas medicines, food and other humanitarian aids.
