Bangladesh Nationalist Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday said that the government should allow Chief Justice SK Sinha to speak about taking his leave and the foreign visit.
‘The government should allow the chief justice to speak. Why are you [government] not allowing?’ Fakhrul said while talking to journalists as he went to see ailing BNP standing committee member Tariqul Islam in his residence at Shantinagar in Dhaka.
The secretary general alleged that the government had accomplished all arrangements for ‘forcibly’ sending the chief justice abroad.
Fakhrul said that the ruling party could not tolerate the verdict by the chief justice on the 16th amendment to the constitution as it was thinking it would cause problem to them.
Sinha is likely to leave Dhaka for Australia on Friday night.
