Quader flays ex-CJ Sinha over new book

AL gen secy accuses BNP of lying over UN invitation
Staff Reporter

Criticising Surendra Kumar Sinha, the general secretary of the ruling Awami League (AL), Obaidul Quader, alleged that the former chief justice wrote his book out of a “sense of frustration”. “SK Sinha wrote a fiction from out of his frustration of becoming a ‘former’,” he said while speaking to journalists on Sinha’s new book prior to attending a party meeting at its Bangabandhu Avenue office in the capital. An autobiography of former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, titled ‘A Broken Dream: Rule of Law, Human Rights and Democracy’, came out on Sunday. In his book, Sinha claimed that he had resigned in the face of intimidation and threats. The AL general secretary also said: “Sinha has now become a former and there is the heartburn of becoming a former. Everybody knows under what circumstances he became a former, so I think there is nothing to speak about someone who is writing such fiction and publishing books from abroad.” Quader, who is also the road transport and bridges minister, said Sinha should have written such imaginary tales while  staying in Bangladesh. “Why didn’t he make such a statement when he was the Chief Justice? There is no logic to believe such fabricated statements made while staying abroad,” he added.

Justice Sinha, the 21st chief justice of the country, resigned on November 10 last year while abroad. Regarding the greater political unity, Quader said the unity among leaders and parties cannot exert any influence on people’s unity. “Once, 76 political parties forged unity... But did it leave any impact on people’s minds?” he asked. Replying to a question over a BNP delegation’s visit to the US, Quader said the UN secretary-general did not invite the BNP representatives, as claimed by the party, to its office. “It is now clear as daylight,” he said, adding the BNP is spreading falsehoods as regards the invitation.
