BNP wants to go to power in an unconstitutional way, said Fisheries and Livestock Minister SM Rezaul Karim on Sunday.
“The current government will hand over power to the elected government, and it is a constitutional process, but BNP and its associate bodies deny the process, which means they do not follow the path of the constitution. Whatever they say is contradictory to the constitution,” he said
The minister said this while speaking at a programme held at Jatiya Press Club in the city.
If the BNP does something unconstitutional, according to the constitution of the country, it is called treason, and according to article 7(a) of the constitution, their actions are tantamount to treason, he said.
