Staff Reporter :
Senior leaders of the BNP have blamed the government for the 'forced resignation' of Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.
The Party's highest policy making body National  Standing Committee Members Dr. Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain and Barrister Moudud Ahmed on Saturday brought the allegations in several meetings in the city.
Dr. Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain said, "SK Sinha was forced to quit because the government was in fear that if Sinha remains in his post, he may declare 154 Awami League MPs elected unopposed illegal. It was the reason, we heard that."
He further said, "The Chief Justice was sent on sick leave and compelled him to resign. It is unfortunate and shameful matter."
He passed the remark while addressing a programme at the National Press Club  in memory of BNP Standing Committee Member MK Anwar who died on October 24. Bangladesh Jatiyatabadi Nagorik Dal arranged the programme.
 "We have also heard that he (Sinha) came to Singapore for returning to the country, but he could not do it. We are very sorry for the matter," Dr. Mosharraf said.
Amid various speculations and row over the Supreme Court's judgment on the 16th amendment, SK Sinha finally stepped down sending resignation letter from abroad.
President Abdul Hamid's Press Secretary Joynal Abedin on Saturday confirmed the receipt of the letter.
Barrister Moudud Ahmed said "SK Sinha was forced to resign. It is a stigmatised incident for the judiciary and the independence of the court."
The senior BNP leader was addressing a programme at the National Press Club marking the 'National Revolution and Solidarity Day'.
Bangladesh Jatiyatabadi Sangskritik Dal arranged the programme.
Moudud Ahmed said that the government took action against Sinha being aggrieved over the country's apex court verdict  on the 16th amendment."
The former law minister said also that the government could file a review petition against the verdict, but they preferred coordinated personal attacks on Sinha.
He said, "The entire nation has been badly hurt by the incident, but we don't know what the government has gained from Sinha's resignation."
