A court in Dhaka has issued a temporary injunction blocking the national council of BNP's student front Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), which the party said "a conspiracy hatched by the government."
Judge Farzana Akter of Dhaka's Fourth Senior Assistant Judge Court passed the order after Md Aman Ullah Aman, a former assistant religious affairs secretary of JCD, filed a case seeking a permanent injunction on the holding the council on Thursday (Sept 24).
The sixth council of the JCD was scheduled to be held on Sept 14 to form its new leadership.
The court also issued a show-cause notice to 10 BNP leaders including Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir asking why a permanent injunction would not be imposed in this regard.
The BNP leaders have been asked to respond within seven days, Kallyan Kumar Singha, a bench assistant of the court, told Bangla Tribune.
Aman could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, BNP blamed the government for the court order.
"We haven't received the court order yet and it's a conspiracy by the government against [BNP]," party leader Fazlul Haque Milon told Bangla Tribune.
Claiming Aman become a victim of a conspiracy, Milon said the former JCD leader was forced to file the case. "We don't know his [Aman] whereabouts for a while."
BNP will face the issue "legally and politically,", said Milon, who is a member of JCD's election conducting committing.
