16th amendment verdict unnerves AL: Fakhrul

 BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday said the government is feeling the heartache as the Supreme Court’s verdict scrapping the 16th amendment to the constitution has exposed the country’s ‘real situation’.     

“We are telling again and again that after publishing the observations of the verdict, it has been proved that they (government) have no moral right to stay in power. It has been now in office only by force with the power of guns and pistols,” he said.

The BNP leader came up with the remarks at a doa mahfil at the party’s central office in the capital’s Naya Paltan.  

Jatiyatabadi Juba Dal organised the mahfil seeking early recovery of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia who underwent a surgery in her right eye in London.

He said the fact is that the government won’t be able to stay in chair, even for a second, without guns and pistols.

Fakhrul alleged that the ruling party leaders are now talking about conspiracy in fear of losing power.

The Supreme Court has given some important observations in the verdict out of its sense of responsibility as the country is heading towards destruction.
