Also the road transport and bridges minister, Quader said his talks with the chief justice has not concluded yet and he will meet him again.
“I visited the residence of the chief justice. We had a long discussion and the discussion has not ended yet. More discussions will be held, said Quader while addressing a programme in the capital on Sunday.
The programme was organised to mark the birth anniversary of Sheikh Kamal, the elder son of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, near Maulana Bhasani Stadium in the city.
The ruling party general secretary met the chief justice at his residence on Saturday night.
He met the chief justice at a time when the judiciary, the executive and the legislature are apparently at loggerheads over supremacy and which has intensified recently following the 16th amendment annulment verdict.
I conveyed our party’s stance on the observations given in the 16th amendment annulment verdict, to the chief justice. I don’t want to make any remark before completing the discussion. You will come to know everything when the time is ripe. I, too, will tell you once the discussion is finished, Obaidul added.
