Accusing the government of forcing Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha to resign, BNP’s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Tuesday said he fears now the government will use the court to suppress its opponents.
"The chief justice was forced to quit through hooliganism. The government will now use the court to fulfill its desire and suppress its opponents. They (government) will now create a butcher house to punish those against it," he said.
The BNP leader came up with remarks while talking to reporters at his ancestral place in the district.

About the next polls, Rizvi said her party’s chief Khaleda Zia rightly said a credible and neutral election is never possible under Sheikh Hasina.
"If the election is held under Sheikh Hasina, the ballot boxes will be stuffed at by 3am the night before the polls and the opposition candidates won't be able to submit their nominations," he observed.
The BNP leader said his party will join the next general election if it is held under a polls-time neutral and supportive government.
"We won't take part in the election under Sheikh Hasina as they will create a violent environment and obstruct voters from going to polling stations."
