"A vested quarter is there engaged in an evil design to create a distance between the government and the judiciary, and this is how they're creating misconceptions among people with wrong information," he said.
The chief justice said this while addressing a function inaugurated by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Sinha said the government has taken some very important decisions regarding the judiciary a couple of days back, but the chief justice, as the guardian of the judiciary, was not kept in the loop.
"Giving totally wrong information and hiding the facts, these decisions have been realised from the head of the government," the chief justice said adding, "There wouldn't have been any misunderstanding had there been discussions with the chief justice prior to taking the decisions on such important matters."
The Chief Justice, however, did not elaborate the matters he was referring to.
