Rizvi lashes out at Quamrul for remark on Chief Justice
BNP has termed “extremely audacious” the Food Minister Quamrul Islam's comment on Chief Justice SK Sinha following the Supreme Court's verdict that made 16th Amendment to the Constitution. “The food minister's remark about the Chief Justice is extremely audacious and a grave threat to the independent judiciary," BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said during a briefing at party’s Nayapaltan central office on Friday, reports UNB. Speaking at a discussion at Dhaka Bar Association auditorium on Thursday, Minister Quamrul Islam demanded removal of the Chief Justice saying: “If he (Sinha) had the minimum sense of morality, he would have resigned willingly. Or else, the lawyers will wage a strong movement against him from September.” Quamrul also alleged that the Chief Justice is speaking in BNP's tune making an entente with anti-liberation forces. Protesting the minister's comment, Rizvi suggested Quamrul to see his own face in the mirror as he had been holding the office even after being convicted by the apex court. “Though you've broken the oath of protecting the constitution, still you're holding the office as a minister.” Rizvi also said Quamrul could not tolerate the rule of law as he himself was convicted by the Supreme Court. The BNP leader alleged that Quamrul's brother was an infamous Razakar commander of Dhaka city and peace committee chairman during the Liberation War. “Those who are destroying all the state institutions and snatching people's voting rights are now advising the Chief Justice to step down,” he added. Rizvi again alleged that the police and ruling party cadres were obstructing their party's member collection drive across the country. Besides, he claimed that around 300 BNP leaders and activists were arrested on Thursday across the country, including Jessore, Mymensingh and Jhenidah. He strongly condemned the arrest of BNP men and demanded the government immediately stop its countrywide mass arrest drive.
