Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Saturday alleged that ruling Awami League is ‘spitting venom’ on chief justice SK Sinha with a motive to cement one-party rule in the country by weakening the judiciary.”I think what Awami League is saying and what they’re doing over the 16th amendment verdict are against the rule of law and tantamount to contempt of court. Their all leaders are making indecent comments targeting the chief justice, committing the contempt of court,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.Fakhrul came up with the comments while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave in the capital, marking the release of party vice chairman Barkatullah Bulu from jail.Bulu was freed on bail on 18 August nearly three months after he was sent to jail in 13 violence cases.The BNP secretary general said, “The main motive behind their comments and activities is to restore one-party rule by destroying the independence of the judiciary. But, the country’s people will never accept it.”He said ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) has no legitimacy to stay in power after the observations of the 16th amendment verdict. “The government should quit immediately.”About Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader’s comment that BNP’s dream of putting the government in trouble following the apex court verdict has dashed, Fakhrul said the ruling party leaders are now making ‘reckless’ remarks as the verdict has exposed the government’s ‘true face’.Fakhrul said their party is not hopeful of getting any solution to the country’s main crisis over the nature of election-time government from the election commission’s current talks with different stakeholders, including the political parties.Sought his reaction to Awami League’s stance on the apex court’s 16th amendment verdict, BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed said it is unprecedented that the government or the ruling party hold meeting with the chief justice over any verdict of the court.”We can say they’re trying to influence the judiciary and the chief justice which is unconstitutional. What example they’re setting now will remain as a serious stigma for the country in the future,” he observed.
Logo of arrestPolice arrested four people, including a leader of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), while they were allegedly consuming yaba pills in Chaitannogoli area of Chattogram on Friday night.The BNP leader is Tinku Das, office secretary of Chattogram city unit of the BNP, reports news agency UNB.The other arrestees are Firoz Alam, 32, Md Shahjahan, 50 and Md Baki, 39.On information, a team of police conducted a raid on the rooftop of a house in the area and caught them red-handed around 9:00pm, said Kotwali police station officer-in-charge Mohammad Mohsin.The law enforcement team also recovered 60 yaba tablets from their possession, he added.A case was filed against the detainees under the Narcotics Control Act, the OC added.
Only the opposition candidates can explain the reasons for their polling agents not showing up at the centres, chief election commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda has said.”What can we do if the agents of ‘sheaf of paddy’ (BNP’s electoral symbol) do not come?” the CEC said in reply to the journalists’ question as to why there was no agent of Bangladesh Nationalist Party at the IES School and College polling centre at Uttara Sector-5 in Dhaka, where he went to cast his vote in the 11th parliamentary elections on Sunday. CEC Nurul Huda talking to the journalistsNo one complained over any obstacles to enter the voting centres, he said. When the journalists asked him if he had seen any BNP polling agent at the centre, he said he did not notice that.Barring a few exceptions, the situation is fine all over the country, the CEC claimed. The returning officers, police and the law enforcement were given directives to carry out their specific duties, he said. All the centres couldn’t be controlled staying in Dhaka, but voting will be postponed if the situation was out of control, Nurul Huda said.Voting was suspended at the centres where irregularities broke out, and if the situation improves, voting would be resumed at these centres later, he further said.On the allegations that the voters at some centres are being forced to vote for Boat, the CEC said he had not heard anything like that.When asked if this election could remove the previous election’s stigma, he said, “Let the election be finished first.”
