Bangladesh is now being run by whatever the ruling party formulates as law for their personal gain, regardless of what the actual law is, said BNP’s Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury.
"Now, there's no rule of law in Bangladesh. The country is now being run by the ruler's law as what the government is now saying is law," he said.
Khasru said while speaking at a discussion arranged by Swadhinata Odhikar Andolan at Jatiya Press Club on Monday, reports UNB.
"The ruler now makes laws as per its whim and use those for its gain as the rule of law is obliterated," added he.
He said the current government amended the constitution for their own interest and formulated 'anti-state' laws in 'unelected' Parliament.
He urged the government to come to the path of democracy and restore people's all rights through holding a fair and neutral election.
The BNP leader alleged that the issuance of warrants for the arrest of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in two graft cases is a part of the government's evil design.
He said the government is trying to establish its full control on the judiciary to perpetuate its power.
Khasru said the government forced Chief Justice SK Sinha to quit as he tried to establish justice and uphold the independence of the judiciary.
