Joining JS by BNP depends on attitude of govt: SQ Chowdhury

BLHouse Report

BNP standing committee member Salahuddin Quader Chowdhury has said how Begum Khaleda Zia was evicted from the cantonment house was not right.

"After canceling lease of the house at the Cabinet, I, as a politician, suggested them to face the matter politically. Barrister Moudud Ahmed, as a lawyer, opined of solving it in the court," SQ Chowdhury said.

He made the comments while talking to the journalist in the Supreme Court where he went for securing ad-interim bail in a case from the High Court Division yesterday (December 5).

He said the decision of joining the parliament session and resigning from the JS membership by the BNP lawmakers depend on attitudes of the Government.

"Nobody took lesson from the one-eleven. Another disaster like that may happen in the country," he added.

Replying to a query whether they will join the JS session, he posed a question, "How will we join parliament, if the government keeps us busy in courts?"

About resignation of the BNP lawmakers, he said, "The Awami League Government itself on December 28 in 1994 began the practice of resigning from the JS membership."

"I cannot ensure that no incident like that will happen in future," he added.

On another query, he said the house of Begum Khaleda Zia was not a normal residence, rather it was a house with national flag of the Leader of the Opposition in the parliament and of former prime minister.

When asked about reprint of the Constitution, he said the law was not formulated in parliament now, rather in the court.
