16th amendment: SC has given a ‘historic verdict’, says Fakhrul
As the protector of the constitution, the Supreme Court has given a “historic verdict” on the 16th amendment case and by disregarding it, the government has lost its moral legality to stay in the office, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today said.
The BNP leader made the observations during a doa mahfil arranged to pray for the wellbeing of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia at the party central office at Nayapaltan of the capital. Khaleda Zia underwent a successful eye surgery at a hospital in London on August 8.
“When the state is at stake, at that time the Supreme Court has delivered the verdict from its sense of duty,” Fakhrul said.
Countering the statement of Obaidul Quader, ruling Awami League general secretary and also minister for Road Transport and Bridges, that BNP is doing politics with the 16th amendment verdict, Fakhrul said “Before giving lessons to BNP over morality, you should resign for the current state of the roads and highways.”
