Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Haque said that the decision regarding the bail and trial of BNP leaders is the sole jurisdiction of the court. He said this in response to questions from journalists while officially conducting his election campaign from the road market area in Akhaura, Brahmanbaria on Tuesday afternoon.
“All the leaders will be released if the BNP comes to the elections” – Minister of Agriculture Dr. Law Minister Advocate Anisul Haque said, ‘What the Agriculture Minister said is his personal opinion. It is not the opinion of the party. BNP leaders who have been arrested have been arrested in specific cases. Only the court can speak about their trial and bail.’
The law minister said, ‘When the BNP was running a dictatorship by killing Bangabandhu and his family in 1975, the judiciary was corrupted. Now that is not the case. At present, the judiciary of Bangladesh is independent.
Earlier, the minister reached Akhaura from Dhaka by train. He is Awami League candidate for Brahmanbaria-4 (Kasba-Akhaura) constituency.
Anisul Haque also said, ‘In the last 10 years there has been great development in Kasba-Akhaura. With the love of the people, this development will continue in the future.’
Later, the minister visited the shrine of Kalla Shaheed (Rah.) at Kharampur.
Akhaura Upazila Awami League President Md. Ali Chowdhury, General Secretary Takzil Khalifa Kajal and other party leaders were present.
